2002 Badwater Ultramarathon Roster


The 2002 Sun Precautions Badwater Ultramarathon race field was closed on February 1. One of the goals of this event is to provide an international meeting ground, wherein the "Badwater family" can extend its membership and kindred spirit far beyond the borders of Southern California and America. This 2002 race roster reflects that goal. The 2002 invitation list includes 16 women and 63 men, citizens of eight different countries and 19 American states, 33 Badwater veterans and 46 rookies, die hard ultrarunners of every speed and ability, plus athletes who have the necessary ultrarunning credentials, but are also or primarily known for their exploits as adventure racers, mountaineers, triathletes, or some other "out there" pursuit. It's an amazingly diverse group, the biggest and deepest ever assembled to compete on these hallowed roads.
