Sunday, August 28th 2022, 12:54 pm - Death Valley, Calif., is 7,800 square kilometres in size with challenging elevation changes, but that didn't stop a Canadian explorer and ultra-long distance runner from traversing across it in a 48-hour trek on July 7

Death Valley, Calif., is often the hottest place on Earth with air temperatures that regularly climb into the mid-40s or higher.

The scorching valley is 7,800 square kilometres in size with challenging heat and elevation changes, but that didn't stop Canadian explorer and ultra-long distance runner Ray Zahab from traversing across the desert in a 48-hour trek on July 7.

Jaclyn Whittal, a meteorologist at The Weather Network, caught up with him before and after his daunting expedition.
