The NordicTrack and iFIT Team congratulate iFIT Trainer Ashley Paulson for coming in first place overall at the Badwater® 135 Ultramarathon this week – and setting the second-best time in the event’s history!
Spanning 135 miles from Death Valley to Mt. Whitney, CA, the Badwater® 135 is billed as “the most demanding and extreme running race offered anywhere on the planet.” Racers start at Badwater Basin, Death Valley, which marks the lowest elevation in North America at 280 ft. below sea level and finishes at Whitney Portal at 8,300 ft, which is the entry point to the Mt. Whitney summit, the highest point in the continental United States.
