81-year old, Ed Whitlock is a multi-world record-holder.
This weekend the Zoomer will attempt to break another record for his age group in this Sunday’s Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon.
Whitlock needs to run sub-3:45 to do that.
Last month, he set an age-class half-marathon world mark, running 1:38.57 in Milton.
Whitlock grew up in London and moved to Canada following university.
He ran in his teens and then rediscovered the sport in his 40s when he volunteered to coach with a track club just outside Montreal.
Whitlock doesn’t plan on slowing down any time soon.
He says he will run for as long as he can.
