Filmmaker Mel Stuart chronicles marathon participants on a 135-mile race through Death Valley and up Mount Whitney.

Running on the Sun: The Badwater 135 is a 2000 documentary film directed by Mel Stuart. The film follows athletes as they run 135 miles in the 1999 Badwater Ultramarathon, starting in Californias Death Valley and ending at Whitney Portal, the trailhead to Mount Whitney.

The winner for the 1999 race was Eric Clifton with a time of 27 hours and 49 minutes, beating the previous year winner, Gabriel Flores.

Forty runners compete in the most grueling race on earth, the Badwater. The film documents the trials and tribulations of these athletes as they run 135 miles through Death Valley in July and explores the motivations behind this seemingly masochistic contest. A celebration of the perseverance of the human will beyond the limits of the human body
