Posted at 1:22 PM, Nov 14, 2016
It's only fitting that the King would win a marathon in Las Vegas.
On Nov. 13, Mike Wardian not only won the Rock 'n' Roll Marathon but set a Guinness World Record for the fastest marathon in an Elvis costume.
Wardian crossed the line in 2 hours, 38 minutes, 4 seconds, beating out the old Elvis record set by Ian Sharman, which was 2:42:52.
At 42, Wardian is a three-time Olympic Trials marathon qualifier and works in Arlington, Virginia as an international ship broker. 
Other costumed characters included Spiderman, Forrest Gump, several T-rexes, Wonder Woman, Superman, and countless Elvis impersonators.
