The buckle and the patch are for those who finished the "Badwater 146mi" according to the Guidelines posted here, regardless if it was part of the AdventureCorps race or not.
( fyi , the official AdventureCorps Badwater 135mi race offers a buckle which is different than this Badwater 146 buckle)
Previous Admins were threatened with a lawsuit for "selling" a handful of buckles a year. So like the people before us, we will institute a minimum suggested donation of $30 for a buckle and one patch. You can use Paypal, credit card, check
Buckle Offered until 2012.
