Non-Scientific Adventures


back to >Ultrarunning

The runner at Badwater is utterly dependent upon the support of their crew:
a bunch of people who volunteer to spend sevcral sleepless days and nights out on the road in the searing heat of Death Valley. And they actually seem to enjoy it!

"CREW = cranky runner; endless waiting"

So - many thanks to my crews over the past 10 years, and hoping that some of you will continue to support me in future Badwater races
