You can follow along as runners hit the hot pavement in Death Valley. For those of you new to this, runners start in three waves: 6:00 a.m., 8:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. CA time. Again, I don't think there are any Hawaii runners there this year however quite a few friends. Luis Escobar is taking photos.
At this point all runners should be out on the course though it will look like some are possibly further ahead than others due to their start time. The faster, more experienced runners start at the 10:00 a.m. time.
In any case, if you are complaining about the heat today, think about these runners.
