Epic Bill Bradley Statistics
I believe this year would have been an ideal situation where we wouldn’t have those record temperatures, and I felt like I could really have a good chance of completing!
Unfortunately we have had to cancel my 3rd attempt at a Solo Self Contained BADWATER 146 this year due to Flooding/ Closure in Death Valley!!! Initial reports had us optimistic we would get it in.
But unfortunately it’s A No Go!!!
At least for this year!!!

Pushing Mercury II, 2021 - My 2th Attempt: “Did a lot better the last year”
SOLO-BADWATER 146 turned into a assisted BADWATER 135
Even though I went further then last years attempt, making it to Furnace Creek 17.5 miles. I had to end my Solo-Badwater 146 due to the extreme heat with temperatures exceeding 120° in the shade. I was just unable to lower my body temperature. After recovering the next morning I decided to attempt a Assisted Badwater 135. Which I hadn’t done in over 4 years. Woo Hoo!!

STAY FIT ODAAT Podcast interview with Bill
By Miguel Reyes
We are actively looking for Sponsorship for our many up coming event schedule in 2019. In our last event “MT Denali 2018”, we garnered over 1.2 million views on (2) of the (6) videos documenting the climb, with a watch time of over 3 minutes per/view on our YouTube channel.
I met Bill today in Salisbury, England at a train station waiting to go home on leave from the army. We ended up speaking to the very point we had to go our separate ways. He is a great guy and unique. The stories he told me had me in awe and left me amazed. Bill you are a fantastic character and it was a pleasure to have met you. Hopefully our paths cross again some day.
I too am an endurance athlete but a thimble size fraction ...of your epic performances!!! Love the motivation that you produce for me and countless others
That was a lot of fun Bill! You are one tough cookie!
Amazing! I had no idea!!
Even though I have heard about these epic events (ordeals) before, I was totally into your talk. So was everyone else!!! Super impressive!! The talk elevated the already epicness even more...!!!!
