Man runs into the record books

Monday, October 17, 2011

Age 100, Fauja Singh has run into the record books.

He finished a Toronto marathon yesterday.

He's now the oldest runner to complete a full-distance marathon -- 26-plus miles -- and earns a Guinness record.

It took Singh more than eight hours to cross the finish line - that's six hours after the winner.

While the crowd was long gone, family, friends and supporters greeted Singh as he finished the race.
