Ultra-runner, Bliss, sets program on Death Valley-Mount Whitney run

ENDURANCE – Spokane ultra marathon runner Lisa Bliss will present a program on her solo epic of running unsupported through Death Valley to the summit of Mount Whitney on Thursday, 7 p.m., at REI.

She finished the grueling 146 miles from the lowest point in the lower 48 states to the highest in 89 hours, 38 minutes.

Bliss is the only woman and the second person to do the run unsupported. She's been honored in the Badwater UltraMarathon Hall of Fame.

Beyond her passion for marathoning, Bliss dedicated the run to raise money for Crosswalk Youth Shelter, a center run by Volunteers of American for homeless teens in Spokane.

The presentation is free, but go online to pre-register to reserve a seat.
