Josh Cox, the 50k American Record Holder, burst onto the national running scene by winning and setting a course record in a 50-mile ultra marathon at the tender age of 22. When he was 23, he ran his first marathon in 2:19, making him the youngest qualifier for the 2000 US Olympic Marathon Trials. Later that year, Cox blistered the 4th fastest time in the US with a 2:13 clocking in Chicago. Since then, Cox, a four-time Olympic Trials qualifier and three-time US National Team member, has garnered the top US spot at the World Track and Field Championships and trained with the world's best. Cox bookended 2009 by shattering the 50k American Record by over 4 minutes at Arizona's Rock 'n' Roll Marathon in January and closed out the year with a runner up performance at the Cal International Marathon in December. For the former, Cox was named USA Track and Field's Athlete of the Week.

As a TV personality, Cox currently offers his professional perspective as an on-air personality for NBC Universal, and is a web host for Runner's World. In 2005, Cox starred on ABC's hit reality show, The Bachelorette. In addition to his 140 mile a week training regimen, Cox is active as a speaker and writer. Josh and fellow Mammoth Track Club member, Ryan Hall, are writing a running book, Soul Runners, due out in 2011 through Harvest House Publishers.
