TORONTO - A 100-year-old runner became the oldest person to complete a full-distance marathon when he finished the race in Toronto on Sunday.

 Indian-born Fauja Singh earned a spot in the Guinness World Book of Records for his accomplishment.

 It took Singh more than eight hours to cross the finish line — more than six hours after Kenya's Kenneth Mungara won the event for the fourth straight year — and he was the last competitor to complete the course.
