Big Weekend for Rock ‘n’ Roll Arizona

Image

Josh Cox broke his own American 50K record yesterday after winning the Rock 'n' Roll Arizona marathon. His time for 31.2 miles was 2:43:45, three minutes faster than the record he set in 2009, and only seven seconds shy of the world record. After finishing the marathon in 2:17:32, Cox ran the last five miles of the 50K on the Arizona State University Track.

Portland's Kara Goucher placed second in the women's half marathon — her first race since the September 25 birth of her son, Colt. Her time of 1:14:02 put her just behind Madai Perez of Mexico.
