Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon

(2018) Cam Levins had the marathon debut of his life Sunday (Oct 21) at the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon, crossing the finish line in 2:09:22 and breaking Jerome Drayton’s Canadian national record of 2:10:09 in the process. That record comes with a $43,000 (CAD) payday–$1,000 for every year the record has stood. Levins finished fourth . Kenya’s Benson Kipruto, 27, was the overall winner clocking 2:07:21, with Mimi Beleteof Bahrain winning the women’s marathon and breaking the course record of 2:22:43.Cam was certain a record was within his grasp at the 40K mark.The final two kilometers went by so fast for him that it seemed like a sprint. “It was pretty much a blur, especially the last half-kilometre,” Levins said. “Everything was flying by at that point."The 29-year-old from Black Creek, B.C., did his best to focus on the finish line where his wife, Elizabeth, mother, Barb, and father, Gus, were waiting. He eclipsed a national record by former long-distance champion Jerome Drayton – and by a substantial 44 seconds. “It is such an old record, it is nice to be the one to take it down,” Mr. Levins said. “It’s a good one to check off the list."
