The BADWATER ULTRA CUP is a three-event series comprising the 51-mile Badwater Cape Fear in March, the 81-mile Badwater Salton Sea in late April, and the 135-mile Badwater 135 in July. Those runners who complete all three full-distance events in the same calendar year are featured on the Badwater website and their virtues are extolled throughout the Internet and in future editions of BADWATER Magazine.
