Chris Kostman got his start early in ultra sports: He set world ultra cycling records in high school in 1984 and 1985 (riding against the clock from San Francisco City Hall to Los Angeles City Hall) and completed the 3127-mile, eleven-day Race Across America bicycle race at age 20 in 1987. That was a springboard to competing in events as diverse as the Triple Ironman in France, the 6.5-mile Skaha Lake Ultra Swim in Canada, numerous winter ultras on mountain bike or snowshoes in Alaska, and scores of 24-hour mountain bike races and 200-mile or longer road bike races. This led to a career producing some of the toughest endurance events available through his company, AdventureCORPS. Hosted in Death Valley, at Cape Fear, in the Mojave Desert, on the slopes of Mt. Shasta, Mt. Laguna, Mt. Palomar, and beyond, these events include multi-day cycling lifestyle camps, centuries and double century bicycle rides, the venerable Furnace Creek 508 / Silver State 508 bicycle race, and the world-famous Badwater® 135, Badwater Cape Fear, and Badwater Salton Sea ultramarathons.
