British Columbia Runner Breaks 43-Year-Old Marathon Record

The 43-year-old Canadian men’s marathon record has been shattered. Cam Levins, age 29, ran his first marathon in Toronto and beat the old record by 44 seconds, running the 42.2 kilometers in two hours, nine minutes, and 25 seconds. Levins, age 29, of Black Creek, British Columbia, wanted to debut in Canada and specifically at the 29th annual Toronto Waterfront Marathon. Before the race, he said it was the right time to try the marathon and he felt he was more fit than at any time in his career. He has grown to enjoy the longer workouts of a marathon in place of speed work on the track. If you are considering immigration to Canada, contact Canadian Visa Expert.
