Yesterday I posted the results from the 2013 Badwater Ultramarathon, a grueling race that covers more than 135 miles (217 km) through Death Valley and up to the Mt. Whitney Portals that features more than 13,000 feet (3962 meters) of vertical gain. If you’re not already familiar with the race, you’ll want to check out the video below. It was shot in the 2010 race and features runner Jamie Donaldson, who set a course record 0f 26:16:12 on that run. The short film will give you an idea of what the runners deal with while out on the course.
