Near-death and Resurrection on the World's Toughest Endurance Course

In 1989, two runners set off to become the first to run from Death Valley to Mt. Whitney and back--in mid-summer. Lotsa luck fellers!

The world's toughest running course is a demon of climatic contrasts: blistering asphalt vs. a freezing mountain summit, parched desert vs. midsummer hailstorms, sandstorms vs. lightning barrages. And all within 90 air miles of each other. Both extremes too temptingly close to resist.

"Over the years, as both a race director and as a runner, I've been involved in some incredible endurance events, from the highly competetive Western States 100 to the bone-grinding 6-day races. However, adventure runs from the heart of Death Valley to the peak of Mt. Whitney are a different story when it comes to pushing one's self to the limit. Rich Benyo's book on the world's toughest endurance course takes the reader along every step of some of the most outrageous real estate in the world. Between the extreme heat and the altitude, it made me long for a huge glass of ice tea and an oxygen mask."

-- Norm Klein, former race director, Western States 100

Hardcover: 294 pages.
