101-year-old, world's oldest marathon runner, taking up running at age 89: "daily exercise will keep you away from all diseases"

101-year-old marathoner Fauja Singh

101-year-old – world oldest marathoner

(quote)

The world's oldest marathon runner, 101-year-old Fauja Singh, will quit after one final run at next month's Hong Kong race, media reports said on Thursday.

Indian-born British national Singh admitted age was finally catching up with him and he had decided not to compete after the Hong Kong Marathon on February 24, five weeks before his 102nd birthday on April 1.

"But I will keep running for at least four hours daily after that," Singh, who lives in Ilford, England, told the Times of India newspaper during a visit to his home state of Punjab.

"Running is my life. I will keep running to inspire the masses."

Singh, dubbed the 'Turbaned Tornado', took up running marathons at the ripe old age of 89 and has been credited with competing in eight 42-kilometre (26-mile) races in London, Toronto and New York.

He finished his fifth London Marathon last year in a time of seven hours and 49 minutes and was honoured by being invited to carry the Olympic torch.

Singh, who says he was born on April 1, 1911, insisted he was not suffering from any illnesses and did not take medicines when he was asked the secret of his amazing physical fitness.  read more »
