Badwater 135 Ultramarathon Time!!

That's right! its time again for me to crew for the Badwater 135 mile Ultramarathon that starts at Badwater, the lowest elevation on earth, -282 feet below sea level, also known as Death Valley! It is known as the Toughest Race on the Planet due to the extreme heat, dry desert conditions and cooler or colder temperatures that can occur on Mt. Whitney.

The race finishes at Mt. Whitney trail heat at 8360 ft. 135 miles. 48 hours to make the finish! and yes, this will be my 3rd year crewing for some great runners!

I am super excited about another year crewing and helping and experiencing the race! This year runner, Connie Dockendorf #34 and starts at 8am Monday. Check out the live webcast and updates!

See ya next time with a Badwater recap!
