AdventureCORPS – organizers of the legendary Badwater 135 held annually in Death Valley in July – invite you to their BADWATER® Salton Sea ultramarathon, held annually in late April.

This remarkable event challenges up to 45 teams of two or three ultrarunners – running together as duos or trios for the duration, NOT in a relay – to tackle an unimaginable traverse of Southern California deserts and mountains. The  route covers 81 miles (130km) from Salton City (elevation 234 feet / 71m below sea level) to Palomar Mountain, the almost tallest mountain in San Diego County (elevation 5500 feet / 1676m.) Eight of the 81 race miles pass through Anza-Borrego State Park on a single track trail from Borrego Springs to Ranchita, creating a race route which is a mix of road and trail. There is a total elevation gain of over 9000 feet (2740m). A personal support crew and vehicle is required for each team of two or three runners.

Entry is limited to approximately 115 runners, entered as twenty 2-runner teams and twenty-five 3-runner teams.
