Betty McHugh smashes 90+ age-group marathon record

Betty McHugh wasted little time breaking an age group marathon world record shortly after her 90th birthday. The Canadian ran 6:47:31 at the 2017 Honolulu Marathon, taking more than two hours off Mavis Lindgren's previous record of 8:53:08 set in 1997. The Honolulu Marathon has long been BJ's favorite race, and has become a family affair (pictured). She was joined by her son Brent, grandson David and grand-daughter Ava. Betty has set more than 30 world records over the last 25 years.
