Thanks to Laura Underwood for a great article from Sweet Relish.

Imagine running more than 100 miles through Death Valley, over treacherous mountain passes in the scorching heat, all by yourself. No, it’s not an image of the inner ring of hell; it’s the Badwater Ultramarathon. Each year there are countless endurance adventure races like this, all attracting the most daring and committed athletes on the planet. We’ve outlined the five most extreme events below.

Even with a steep entry fee of more than $14,000, this race always sells out quickly.
