As of spring, 2009, the oldest man to complete a marathon is Dimitrion Yordanidis, aged 98, in Athens in 1976. He finished in seven hours 33 minutes.

Alas, older women do not fare as well as their male counterparts. The oldest woman is Jenny Wood-Allen, aged 90, in London in 2002. She finished in 11 hours and 34 minutes.

On October 16, 2011, Fauja Singh (claimed, and seems likely to be true, age 100) became the first centenarian to finish a marathon when he finished the Toronto Marathon in over eight hours. His record will not be recognized by Guiness because he cannot produce a birth certificate (India did not keep birth records back then).
