Las Vegas Deputy Police Chief Christian Montao last weekend won a race in southern New Mexico that was part of the city police’s effort to recruit more officers.
Montao, 37, participated in the 15.2-run as part of the Bataan Memorial Death March, which also included a marathon and walking events.
He beat the other 257 participants, passing the finish line at one hour, 52 minutes. The nearest competitor, Ronald Marple, came in about 12 minutes later.
Chad Matey, 33, of Las Vegas finished 14th in two hours, 19 minutes.
