Jon is a highly-experienced runner who adopted the sport of heat running in 1996. He visits Death Valley every year to participate in his bizarre creation, The Darth Valley Challenge - a one-mile charge through the desert in the height of summer, dressed as Darth Vader.

To prepare for such silliness he takes extraordinary precautions. He trains year-round in the sauna, runs countless miles in extreme temperatures, and has crewed the Badwater Ultramarathon twice.

Jon's only request as you read this site is that you prepare carefully, tell someone where you're going and when you'll be back, and take more water than you think you'll need.

  1. You guys are nuts…………and inspiring.” Now, where’s my local Sauna…?!”

  2. Driving through Death Valley a few weeks back, I have not been able to get the idea of running there out of my mind. I will eventually do it, there is no doubt in my mind. I love the heat although the valley is extreme. This site looks like a great resource of tips and information.

    Has anyone else tried long distance solo running in Death Valley? I am eager to hear your experiences.
