This interview with the Badwater Ultramarathon race director, Chris Kostman, was conducted in the spring of 2003. This is part one of two parts of the interview. This first part primarily focuses on the origins and history of the race, whereas part two focuses primarily on the significance and meaning of the event, as well as my background in archaeology and how that relates to my work as an endurance sports promoter and adventure entrepreneur. Badwater Ultramarathon™ is the world's toughest foot race. This legendary, epic, 135 mile running race travels non-stop in the heat of Summer from Badwater in Death Valley (elev. 282 feet below sea level) to Whitney Portal on Mt. Whitney (elev. 8360 feet). Field size is limited to up to 90 runners. Visit the race's dedicated website at http://www.badwater.com
