Southern Nevada Health District Investigates Las Vegas Marathon

At this year's Las Vegas Rock n' Roll Marathon, some runners complained of bad-tasting water and became severely ill during and after the event. The Rock n' Roll marathon's Facebook page has since exploded with complaints about the race.

The Southern Nevada Health District has stepped in to try to discover what caused some people to become ill. We talk with the health district's senior epidemiologist and a runner who got sick at the race.

Did you run the race and have an experience you'd like to share? Write us in the comments section below.
