These photos from the Badwater Ultramarathon are from the perspective of a member of Scott Jurek's crew. The demands of crewing this unique race provides a front row seat of your runner throughout the entire 135 miles. Included in this gallery are two sub-galleries: Telescope Peak/Badwater and Last Finishers.

Scott raised a few eyebrows when he stated, "I think I've got a pretty good shot at winning or possibly breaking the course record", in a Seattle P-I interview. However, on his first attempt at this race, Scott won and broke the course record, finishing in 24:36:08, two weeks after his 7th consecutive win at Western States! Ferg Hawke and Mike Sweeney provided the drama for an exciting race through the night.

Comments, as always, are welcome and much appreciated! Enjoy!
