The first GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title at the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon was set in 2004 with Toronto-Beaches resident Michal Kapral running 2:49:44 for the Fastest marathon while pushing a pram. This year, Calum Neff has applied to bring this record back to the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon, and will be challenging the current record of 2:42:21. We invite you to join Calum and help us make 2016 a record-breaking year, with the most GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS titles ever attempted at this event.
