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 kick off 2022 with an authentic, original Badwater experience?

AdventureCORPS® – the organizers of the iconic worldwide series of Badwater® races – are pleased to offer the BADWATER 267 VR 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. These three events comprise the legendary Badwater Ultra Cup - and now Badwater 267 VR! Start off 2022 with this new challenge and immerse yourself in the world of Badwater!

The enthusiasm for the inaugural Badwater 267 VR in 2021 was off the charts with over 660 runners in 30 countries participating! Now YOU can join us for this 31-day, 267-mile epic challenge to start your 2022 in a Badwaterly fashion!

If you are up to the challenge, you will complete 267 miles (430km) in the month of January, 2022. You have 31 days to complete 267 miles on foot - or 133.5 miles swimming or 1068 miles cycling or 534 miles hand-cycling - and you can do them anywhere you want, including indoors and/or on a treadmill. Participation will be totally “honor system,” but there is a highly recommended Private Strava Club and Facebook Event page to bring everyone together.

Participants will receive a BADWATER 267 VR tech shirt, BADWATER buff, and BADWATER sunglasses in a custom Badwater box. For those who log the necessary miles within the RunSignUp system, a BADWATER 267 VR Medal will also be awarded. (Medals are not sent just for participating; they are sent to those who log all the necessary miles with the RunSignUp system.) These items will be shipped approximately 45 days after BADWATER 267 VR concludes. See the event webpage for all the info.

Go at your own pace, as often or as long as you want, wherever you live, anywhere on the planet! 

This is not a traditional ultra, nor a run-of-the-mill virtual – Badwater events are NEVER traditional – it’s the BADWATER 267 VR – an authentic and original BADWATER event – and we hope you will join us!
