This week we remember Ed Whitlock. One year has passed since he broke four hours at the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon at the age of 85, an astounding feat and a world record, one among many in his long list of achievements.
We look back at this race, which would ultimately be his final marathon. We speak with his son, Neil Whitlock, elite runners, Rachel Hannah and Reid Coolsaet, Alan Brookes, Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon race director, and sports scientist, Paul Vanderburgh, to reflect on the story of his 3:56:38 marathon as one of the greatest races in running history.
