Badwater Cape Fear Ultra Marathon


AdventureCORPS presents BADWATER CAPE FEAR on Bald Head Island

Organized by AdventureCORPS, Inc., BADWATER CAPE FEAR is a 51.4-mile  ultra running race featuring a twelve-mile warm-up on the car-free,  one-lane-wide roads of Bald Head Island, followed by 38 miles of running  on the east beach of the island and 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  the undeveloped marshlands and Cape Fear River to the west. It is a  dramatic, invigorating, inspiring setting to experience Cape Fear at  ground level in all its grandeur!

Bald Head Island Limited will be offering 20% off accommodations that weekend.  Call 1-800-432-RENT or visit our specials page to book or for more information.
