San Diego native Josh Cox won the 2010 Las Vegas Rock N’ Roll Marathon on Sunday with a time of 2:25:06.

The course starts at the south end of the Las Vegas Strip and runs up the entire Vegas strip, by all of the casinos, until runners turn west around mile 9.

Scott Bauhs won the half-marathon in a time of 1:02:38.
