Immerse yourself in the world of ultra running and Badwater with some of the biggest names and most insightful coaches, promoters, and professionals ever assembled. Come to learn, to have fun, to expand your horizons, to learn the secrets of longevity, health, and more in this jam-packed weekend get-away held at a southern California desert oasis.
Open to the public, to anyone with on the quest to know and do more, Badwater Immersion will be held immediately before the world-famous Badwater Salton Sea race, giving participants the chance to rub elbows, run, practice yoga, and hang out with some of ultra running's most elite athletes.
Held just a few hours from San Diego and Los Angeles, Badwater Immersion will take place from Friday evening, May 2 until Sunday morning, May 4 at the Borrego Springs Resort in Borrego Springs, CA.
Invitation to attend is extended to anyone interested in the BADWATER events and Ultra Running, whether as a competitor or crew member.
The program includes two morning runs through Borrego Springs, Yoga Tune Up® and Yoga For Athletes classes, a three-hour hike, and four sessions of programs on subjects such as Designing a Multi-Year Plan to Compete in a Pinnacle Event, Crewing 101, Finding a Balance in Your Life, Mental Aspects of Ultra Sports, and Conquering Your Life's Badwaters. Presenters include Marshall Ulrich, Jimmy Dean Freeman, Frank McKinney, and Laurie Kostman, plus an all-star panel of Badwater veterans for a round-table Q&A.
Registration is entirely optional for Badwater Salton Sea participants and crew members, but all are encouraged to attend. Likewise, participants are welcome to attend just Badwater Immersion, or to perhaps also stay to participate in, or serve on a support crew at, the Badwater Salton Sea race on May 5 and 6. (BWSS race entrants and support crews will arrive in Borrego Springs on May 3 or 4, with all the official pre-race activities taking place on May 4, also at the Borrego Springs Resort.)
