Canada man, 100, will be in Guinness Book of World Records for running marathon

Posted: Updated:

One Canadian man proves his age has not run its course.

Fauja Singh, 100, is set to be named in the Guinness Book of World Records for the world's oldest person to complete a full marathon!

With his entourage by his side, Singh successfully completed the spectacular feat in more than eight hours, the last competitor to complete the course. Singh beat his own expectations, which were to complete the course in nine hours.

This is not his first running accomplishment. This is Singh's eighth marathon, and he carried the torch during the relay for the 2004 Athens games.
