Upcoming Race: BADWATER® Salton Sea

BADWATER® Salton Sea takes place annually in late April. This remarkable event challenges runners 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 known as the California Riding and Hiking Trail from near Borrego Springs to near 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 wild footrace in the home of long distance running.

Traveling through multiple conservancies teaming with wildlife and supporting the brave rangers who protect them.

The Rangers are the thin wall separating Africa’s last remaining Elephants and Rhinos from a multibillion-dollar trade in wildlife goods. Ivory and Rhino horn have reached such value that it has created a breed of poachers who are armed to the teeth and willing to risk their lives for their trade.

After having run ultramarathons in the sand, on salt flats, in the mountains, snow and in the jungle, I'm up for a new challenge a "100 miler". A special thanks goes to Stefan, who joined me on the race, it was great to share this great experience.

The 100 miler from Key Largo to Key West was a completely new experience by exceeding the longest run to date "The Wave 2012" (111 km) by more than a marathon. However foremost it was the struggle against the distance, heat and humidity. The reward is however the overwhelming and breathtaking views over the keys and the Gulf of Mexico.
