Tom Knight narrates “Badwater” trailer 2

I was hired by Greenhouse Studio to narrate this trailer for the Badwater ultramarathon – also known as “the world’s toughest race” – where the participants must run a 135-mile course in California’s Death Valley. It begins 282 feet below sea level (Badwater Basin); ending at an elevation of 8360 feet (Whitney portal). The race is held in July when temperatures can soar above 120 degrees–even in the shade. Unbelievably, the record was set by Valmir Nunes who finished the course in 22 hours 51 minutes 29 seconds. Enjoy!
