A press release from the park said the body of Fred Zaloker, 61, was found on Tuesday near the 11,527-foot summit of Mount Clark.

The announcement did not provide any details about the cause of death and said it was being investigated.

Zalokar had planned a day hike on Saturday from the Happy Isles trailhead in Yosemite Valley to Mount Clark using an off-trail route from Bunnell Point. He failed to return.

Zalokar had been an exceptional marathoner and ultrarunner since his 20s, Renault Gazette Journal.

Among his achievements: he saw sub-24-hour finishes in 100-mile races including the Western States 100 and Leadville Trail 100; ran marathons on every continent, including Antarctica; won his age group at six “World Marathon Majors” (Boston, New York, Chicago, London, Berlin, Tokyo); and climbed the highest peaks of five continents.

He lived in San Francisco before moving to Reno in the mid-1980s, where he worked as the manager of a swimming and tennis club. He is survived by his wife Deb and their son Ian.
