Local marathon runner breaks national record

WATCH: Black Creek’s Cam Levins broke a 43-year-old Canadian record at the Toronto Marathon, finishing the 42.2 kilometre race in a blistering time of 2 hours, 9 minutes and 22 seconds.

Levins beat the old record by nearly a minute, passing Jerome Drayton’s time of 2 hours, 10 minutes and 9 seconds.

The record-setting victory marks a major comeback for the 29-year-old, who has battled injuries in recent years and even considered retiring from competition at one point.

Levins takes home a $43,000 payday with the marathon victory, $1,000 for every year the national record stood.
