On February 9, 2018 Gerald Tabios was accepted for the 5th consecutive time to join the Badwater 135 Ultra Marathon Race in Death Valley California. Over 2,000 ultra racers applied but only 100 got accepted in this international event. It is a 135 mile race in Death Valley where the hottest air temperature ever recorded was 134 degrees Fahrenheit. The race starts in Badwater Basin, Death Valley, the lowest elevation in North America to Whitney Portal, the trailhead to Mt. Whitney Summit, the highest point in the contiguous United States.
We will make a feature documentary film to tell the story of a man born and raised in the highlands of the southern part of the Philippines and made his way to New York to be one of the few Filipinos to be invited to the world’s toughest foot race, Badwater 135.
Join us as we make our own journey to make this film a reality. Making a feature documentary film is not going to be easy. We need your help in making sure we can finish this journey together with Gerald.
