BADWATER: It’s a frame of mind, a global family of horizon-chasers, and a statement to the world about priorities and preconceived notions of what is possible. Badwater is a way of life! Are you ready to Badwater in 2022?

AdventureCORPS® – the organizers of the iconic worldwide series of Badwater® races – are pleased to offer two BADWATER 267 virtual races in which competitors will virtually and sequentially traverse the routes of all three Badwater® races – the 51-mile Badwater Cape Fear, the 81-mile Badwater Salton Sea, and the 135-mile Badwater 135 – for a total of 267 miles, or 430km. These are the three events which comprise the legendary Badwater Ultra Cup – and Badwater 267 VR.

There will be two different Badwater 267 virtual races in 2022: a 31-day New Year’s Kick-Off Challenge from January 1 through January 31 and a 16-day elite  race from April 2 through 17 – and you are welcome to join Badwater to attempt one or both of them!

• Badwater 267 VR > a 31-Day Event from January 1 to January 31: Starting on New Year’s Day, you will have 31 days to complete 267 miles on foot and you can do them anywhere you want, including on a treadmill or indoor track.
