Badwater 135 Sponsors


Special thanks to Gillian Robinson and Don Lundell of ("Stuff For People Who Run") for their support of the race, their donation of foot care kits to all race entrants, and for hosting a great online store where you can buy shirts, tops, hats, Moeben Sleeves, DVDs, posters and much more from The World's Toughest Foot Race.


Founded by Badwater veteran Frank McKinney, and based on the principal that "stability begins at home," the Caring House Project Foundation provides shelter to the world's most desperately poor and homeless people. CHPF has impacted the poorest of the poor in the countries of Haiti, Honduras, Nicargua, Indonesia and Africa. As of today, over 7,000 people will have been sheltered because of CHPF, and thousands more are alive because of the foundation's efforts
