AdventureCORPS, Inc., an event production firm specializing in ultra-endurance and extreme sports events, hosts the Badwater Ultramarathon annually in July of each year. Recognized globally as "the world's toughest foot race," this legendary event pits up to 100 of the world's toughest athletes—runners, triathletes, adventure racers, and mountaineers—against one another and the elements. Covering 135 miles (217km) non-stop from Death Valley to Mt. Whitney, CA in temperatures up to 130F (55c), it is the most demanding and extreme running race offered anywhere on the planet. The 36th anniversary edition will be held July 15-17, 2013.
BADWATER: Salton Sea: Announcing our new Badwater race, to be held on May 6-7, it's 81 miles with runners entering and running together in teams of three (not a relay). The route extends from below sea level to the top of one of San Diego County's tallest mountains on a combination of roads and trail. For this inaugural edition, each team must include a Badwater Ultramarathon veteran. Live Webcast | Time Splits & Results
