Article source: Athletics

The 82 year old Canadian long distance runner Ed Whitlock set a new age group world record when he clocked 3hours 41min and 58 seconds at the Toronto marathon on Sunday, October 20. The Canadian averaged 5 minutes and 16 seconds per kilometer or 7.08 minutes per mile. 

Another master-peace performance came from the 64 year old Japanese runner Yoshihisa Hosaka who clocked an impressive sub 3h marathon of 2:50:44. Hosaka ran with an average pace of 4:03 minutes per every km or 6:31 per mile. That also should be some sort of a record.
