- Be a part of it! Run, Pledge, Cheer, Volunteer. The Weekend Schedule.
The Flame and 6 Laurel Wreaths made of olive branches from trees at the Battlefield of site will be coming from Greece to mark the 2,500th of the first run by Pheidippides in 490 BC, to be staged at the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront weekend, September 24th-26th. The flame and wreaths will highlight the Canadian segment of global celebrations that began in Mumbai in January, and will conclude in Athens on October 31st. Along the way, it has passed through other world-cities and their marathons such as Vienna and Prague. This will be the only stop in Canada for the Flame.
