Ian Parker completes the 2010 Badwater Ultramarathon, a gruelling treck of 135 miles from Death Valley to Mt. Whitney in temperatures above 120F that is billed as "the World's toughest footrace". This was his 8th consecutive official finish, in a time of 56:09:02. Ian was the penultimate finisher, coming in ahead of Jack Denness, a remarkable British ultrarunner who became the first 75 year-old to officially finish the race.
