BADWATER: Salton Sea Ultramarathon
May 6-7, 2013
We are excited to announce the first official Badwater Ultramarathon sister race and Badwater Ultramarathon Qualifier, "BADWATER: Salton Sea," scheduled for Monday and Tuesday, May 6 and 7, 2013. For this inaugural race, we are inviting Badwater Ultramarathon veterans, as well as the 2013 Badwater Ultramarathon race field, to enter and lead teams to compete in the event this year.
The BADWATER: Salton Sea route is approximately 81 miles from Salton City (elevation 125 feet below sea level) to Palomar Mountain, (finish line elevation: 5500 feet above sea level.) There is a total elevation gain of 9000 feet. (Imagine the Badwater Ultramarathon race route, but delete the miles from the summit of Towne Pass to the Darwin Time Station: that is very much what this race profile looks like, not only in profile, but in reality!)
