Salton Sea Ultramarathon - April 28-29, 2019

I returned to the 7th rumning of the Salton Sea Ultramarathon as staff photographer.

This remarkable event challenges up to 35 teams of two or three ultrarunners – running together as duos or trios for the duration, NOT in a relay – to tackle an unimaginable traverse of Southern California deserts and mountains. The route covers 81 miles (130km) non-stop from below sea level at the shoreline of the Salton Sea, across, up, and over Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, to the top of Palomar Mountain with a dramatic view of the Pacific Ocean.

 

   


   

 




 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Salton Sea Ultramarathon - April 28-30, 2018

I returned to the 6th rumning of the Salton Sea Ultramarathon as staff photographer. Many more photos of the runners HERE

This remarkable event challenges up to 35 teams of two or three ultrarunners – running together as duos or trios for the duration, NOT in a relay – to tackle an unimaginable traverse of Southern California deserts and mountains. The route covers 81 miles (130km) non-stop from below sea level at the shoreline of the Salton Sea, across, up, and over Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, to the top of Palomar Mountain with a dramatic view of the Pacific Ocean.


A visit to the Salton Sea the day before the race start

   

 

   

At the Salton Sea start line before sunrise for runner check-in

Salton Sea Ultramarathon - May 1-2, 2016


An excursion on Saturday morning to visit the start line on the shore of Salton Sea and check out the dead fish that inspired the race logo



The race started at 6:30 am on Sunday morning.

Some runner and team portraits before the start


 


Fill-flash photos of runners near the highway underpass at mile 6.



Running through the desert section of Anza Borrego State Park .Temperatures warmed to the mid 80's, but nowhere near as hot as Badwater.



 

At mile 40 the runners left the road and began a major climb up the California Riding and Hiking Trail.


   


 

At mile 48 the race route leaves the trail and rejoins the highway. Many teams arrived here after dark.


The runners continued through the night, while I got a good sleep camped at the top of the Jasper Trail. Setting off before dawn to catch up with the slower runners I was delayed while driving up the East Palomar grade by a wonderful panoramic view of fog over Lake Henshaw and the surrounding valley.
