BADWATER Cape Fear returns to Bald Head Island

Saturday, March 21, 2015

The BADWATER® ultra running experience returns to the East Coast when the second BADWATER CAPE FEAR race takes place on Bald Head Island, North Carolina on March 21, 2015. Registration is now open and an image of the 51-mile race finisher's buckle is attached, along with other images from the race's inaugural edition on March 22, 2014. See an aerial video of the 2014 race here:http://vimeo.com/95564034  With 50km and 51-mile options, the race features a twelve-mile warm-up on the car-free, one-lane-wide roads of Bald Head Island, followed by either 19 or 39 miles of running on the wild and secluded sandy beach between Cape Fear and Fort Fisher. The race is held along the Atlantic Seaboard with spectacular views of the Frying Pan Shoals to the east and wild and undeveloped marshlands to the west. It is and dramatic, invigorating, and inspiring manner in which to experience Cape Fear in all its grandeur! This exquisite natural setting is the perfect antidote to the "real world" and a wonderful counterpart to the desert sands of the Mojave Desert and Anza-Borrego Desert featured in the two West Coast BADWATER® races.   Bald Head Island and nearby Southport, NC (featured in the film "Safe Haven") are ideal vacation get-away spots for the entire family, located less than one hour from Wilmington, NC and its major airport with Delta and US Airways service (flying into Myrtle Beach, SC is another convenient option.)  Once the remarkable beauty and quaint southern charm of this area are experienced once, we anticipate that most Badwater Cape Fear participants will make this race an annual pilgrimage. In 2014, eighty runners from 17 states plus Canada, ranging in age from 20 to 72, competed in the inaugural edition. See the entire 2014 webcast here: http://www.badwater.com/capefear/2014.html  This year the race will accept a field of up to 150 runners.   The Official Charity of BADWA
