THE WORLD’S TOUGHEST FOOTRACE
- This weekend, the Badwater 135 is happening.
- It begins July 19.
- Runners will be taking off in the evening.

- People are sleep deprived and doing some of the toughest climbs during the day in the heat.
- It’s a world event.
- We’ll have 84 runners from all across the globe.
- The course starts at the lowest point in North America. The runners then traverse three major mountain climbs, and end up at the Mount Whitney portal.

- The limit is 48 hours.
