Death Valley, In the early hours of the morning on July 13th, amputee runner Amy Palmiero-Winters became the first female amputee to finish the Badwater Ultramarathon. Often called the "World's Toughest Foot Race," Badwater is a 135-mile nonstop run from Death Valley to Mt. Whitney, CA, with temperatures often rising to 130 degrees Fahrenheit. Amy made the most of it, finishing with a time of 41:26:42 despite the temperature of her prosthesis reaching 160 degrees.
At 81 years old, Clarence Hartley will be the oldest runner to toe the line at this year’s Boston Marathon.
