Rice is a Star Wars buff himself. He created the Darth Valley Challenge, a personal challenge to run a mile through Death Valley at the height of its heat.
On Sunday, Rice made the mile run in 6 minutes and 36 seconds when the temperature was a balmy 129 degrees. This year’s goal was to set a new Guinness World Record for the hottest verified run.
Below, watch Rice’s first run in July 23, 2010.
