Cam Levins is set to make his marathon debut on Sunday. The Olympics, NCAA star, and former Canadian 10,000m record-holder had a couple of difficult years due to injury, but is back in full force. Levins trains primarily at elevation in Cedar City, Utah, but also spends time in Portland, Oregon, where his wife Elizabeth works as a pharmacist.
His most notable recent performance was running 1:02:15 at the IAAF World Half Marathon Championships in Valencia in March.
Levins said this morning at the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon press conference that, “I feel really fit. I feel the most fit I have since surgery a couple years ago, and potentially ever. So I’m really excited for Sunday.”
Levins will go out with the second group of pacers at roughly 2:08 pace and see what happens. The Canadian record currently stands at 2:10:09.
