Its not a trip to Badwater and Lone Pine for Harvey, without a visit with his friend, Badwater Ben Jones - which he and his crew did yesterday. Harvey is not alone. Runners and crews make an annual migration to his house or local cafe to spend a few minutes with this "The Mayor" of Badwater. Perhaps some even run Badwater as an excuse to see Ben.

In 1963, he moved to Lone Pine (mile 122 on the race course) to practice medicine, and has been there ever since. He and his wife Denise are three -time finishers of the Badwater race.

His love for the race and community shine through. His knowledge or the race history is unprecedented. He reflects on the the decade from 1977 to 1987, when there were about 10 individuals (with documented records) who did a solo crossing from Badwater to the top of Whitney (146 miles) before it became an official race.

When Ben and his wife was inducted into the Badwater Ultramarathon Hall of Fame in 2010, he shared these words, which hold firm to this day:
"Badwater/Whitney has become a way of life for us. Doing the race is not necessarily “good for the body,” but is offset by being good for the mind, soul, and spirit. The concept of adventure racing and extreme sports is here to stay. We enjoy keeping up with our friends and meeting more people who share the same types of adventures".

If you look closely, you will see that famous smile.
Still pushing, still soaking in the beauty and still smiling.
Lone Pine awaits.
