Levins Sets Canadian Marathon Record

This weekend at the Toronto Waterfront Marathon, a new national benchmark was set. Cameron Levins of Black Creek, in his debut marathon, set a new Canadian Marathon Record.  With a time of 2:09:25, he smashed the previous record by 44 seconds. The previous record (2:10:09) was set by Jerome Drayton in 1975. The fact that the previous record had stood for 43 years is a testament to the magnitude of this achievement.
