Badwater Cape Fear - Ultra Marathon Race
Address: 101 Lighthouse Wynd , Bald Head Island, NC
Founders call it "The world's toughest footrace." It is a 50km or 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 19 or 38 miles of running on the east beach of the island and the wild, secluded sandy beach between Cape Fear and Fort Fisher. Runners will come from all over North America, Colombia, the Philippines, the United Kingdom, and Venezuela for this experience. 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 the first leg of the Badwater® Ultra Cup.
