The BADWATER® experience comes to the East Coast when BADWATER® CAPE FEAR race takes place on Bald Head Island, North Carolina on March 21, 2015. BADWATER CAPE FEAR is a 51.4-mile ultra running race featuring a twelve-mile warm-up on the car-free, one-lane-wide roads and trails of Bald Head Island, followed by 39 miles of running on the wild and secluded sandy beach between Cape Fear and Fort Fisher. The race is held along the Atlantic Seaboard with spectacular views of the Frying Pan Shoals to the east and wild and undeveloped marshlands to the west. It is a dramatic, invigorating, inspiring setting to experience Cape Fear at ground level in all its grandeur! A 50km route is also offered.

AdventureCORPS, Inc. hosts BADWATER® SALTON SEA annually in May. An official qualifier for the Badwater 135 and epic challenge in its own right, this remarkable event challenges up to 30 teams of three ultrarunners - running together for the duration, not in a relay - to tackle an unimaginable traverse of Southern California deserts and mountains. The route covers 81 miles (130km) non-stop from below sea level at the shoreline of the Salton Sea, across, up, and over Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, to the top of Palomar Mountain with a dramatic view of the Pacific Ocean. The third edition will be held May 3-4 (Sunday - Monday), 2015. Info | 2014 Webcast | Download the May 2014 edition of BADWATER Magazine featuring Badwater Salton Sea!
