On February 11th, 2011 at 7:00 p.m., members of the Leduc RCMP along with members of the Devon RCMP and the Edmonton Police Service will depart from the Leduc Detachment for the last leg of the Law Enforcement Torch Run for the Special Olympics.

The final leg of the run is approximately 7 km in length and will end at the Leduc Recreation Center (LRC) where the senior ranking officers from each of the policing agencies represented will light the caldron to kick off the opening ceremonies for the Special Olympics.

The torch run will pass through some of the main streets in Leduc and the event  will temporarily affect traffic flow along the route.  The City of Leduc Community Peace Officers with the assistance of the Black Gold Community Patrol will be stopping traffic at various intersections along the route until the parade of runners passes and then the intersection will reopen.

The scheduled route is as follows:

East on Black Gold Dr. to 46th St., north on 46th St. to 50th Ave., west on 50th Ave. to 47th St., north on 47th St. to 59th Ave., west on 59th Ave. to 50th St., south on 50th St. to Rollyview Rd., east on Rollyview Rd. to Black Gold Dr., North on Black Gold Dr. to the LRC where the opening ceremonies will begin at 8:00.
