News on BADWATER®: There are a lot of ways to be bad

Recently there was some controversy over the traditional Badwater 135 which occurs in Death Valley every July. Instead of going through Death Valley, the race will go through Owens Valley. While the race will still end at the famous Whitney Portal, the original course was shut down when Park authorities from the National Park Service, closed the park to the race late last year.  Famous athletes like Pam Reed, have already signed up for the race.

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,…
