Taipei, Oct. 16 (CNA) A 101-year-old man captured the spotlight on Sunday from 7,800 runners at an
international marathon after crossing the finishing line in the 9-km run.
This was the eighth time Kuo Ting-hu (郭庭虎) from Taoyuan has taken part in the Far Eastern New Century Classic Marathon event in Hsinchu County, having participated in each of the past seven years.
His son Kuo Sen （郭森）said his father gets up at 4:00 a.m. almost very morning to go running whatever the weather.
The son said about 10 years ago, he found out his father was interested in running so they both registered to take part in the event in what was then Taipei County — now New Taipei City. [FULL STORY]
