The BADWATER® experience comes to the East Coast for the first time when the inaugural BADWATER® CAPE FEAR race takes place on Bald Head Island, North Carolina on March 22, 2014. 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 and trails of Bald Head Island, followed by 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 a dramatic, invigorating, inspiring setting to experience Cape Fear at ground level in all its grandeur!
