Cam Levins inches closer to the marathon

Canadian Running - - THE WARM-UP -

One of Canada’s most tal­ented dis­tance run­ners is run­ning the half-marathon at the Sco­tia­bank Toronto Wa­ter­front Marathon. The 21.1k starts and fol­lows the marathon course nearly the en­tire way, un­til veer­ing to the fin­ish in the fi­nal kilo­me­tre. This will give Cam Levins a taste of what world-class marathon­ing is like. He has in­di­cated that he would like to one day soon race 42.2k, and has am­bi­tious goals: not just a Cana­dian record (which has stood at 2:10:09 since 1975), but a time com­pet­i­tive with the fastest in the world to­day.
