Who, What, Why: How can a 100-year-old run a marathon?


Mr Fauja Singh puts his success down to not smoking or drinking alcohol, staying positive - and eating ginger curry.


Mr Singh, who took up running 11 years ago after his wife and son died, trains every day by running 10 miles.

Launching the opening of entries for the Edinburgh Marathon Festival 2012, he said: "I am not a learned person in any shape or form. To me, the secret is being happy, doing charity work, staying healthy and being positive.

"If someone says I must stop running I ignore them - invariably they're younger than me. The secret to a long and healthy life is to be stress-free. If there's something you can't change then why worry about it?

"Be grateful for everything you have, stay away from people who are negative, stay smiling and keep running."
