“I’ve seen a little of everything, by the way, I don’t know what I haven’t seen in the way of somebody dying.”
Badwater Ben Jones is a retired medical Dr. born in 1932. Ben has birthed more than 1,000 babies, performed 2,000 autopsies, and run 133 marathons. Also known as the Mayor of Badwater, he is a three-time Badwater Ultramarathon finisher, husband to fellow Badwater luminary Denise Jones, and was Lone Pine’s MD and autopsy-er for half a century.
Hear historic stories and unfortunate tales from the basin of Badwater to the top of Mt. Whitney as Luis discusses this iconic race with Ben.
