Badwater: Final Prelude to Baldy Peaks 50k

To all the Badwater Finishers out there...congratulations!

What you now need is a cool, relaxing taper run to get the kinks out.
And we've got that for you--in spades.

And for those of you who didn't do Badwater, it's good for you too!

Compare the Baldy Experience®™ to the Badwater Experience

50k vs 122/135 miles!
More Trails...Less asphalt!
Sanguine Big-horns smoking cigarettes vs circling buzzards!
A cool 85 degrees vs 123 degrees!
No need to push a shopping cart or pull a rickshaw!
Aid Stations!
12Hr cutoff vs 60Hr cutoff!

Baldy Peaks 50k inspires finishers to say "Damn! I'll never do *that*
race again". And yet they come back, some say like gerbils to
cocaine, others like swallows to Capistrano.

Go ahead, dare to be Special!
