The Torch bearers only had to pay about $400 for the torch. That's quite a mark up to 3grand US.
Good luck to them ;-\

does anyone know if those torches are refillable? can you just grab some butane or some propane or whatever they run on and relight them over and over

but if you bring it to some crazy ass pyrotechnic. im sure he can get that torch up and running in no time.
people are greedy money hungry pricks typical comming from back east
you can't refill them. the torch isn't really made out of metal.
the only metal ones were the ones used for the opening ceremonies, the rest is more of a hardened plastic. if it burns more than 10 minutes it'll start to melt the casing.
There's actually a small propane tank inside the torch, after the flame is passed, a key is turned to close the valve, then they open the casing up and cut out the propane tank at the copper pipe just below the valve.
it's really cool to see up close. i wouldn't see why you would sell it unless you stole it from someone.
Seems to be for a great cause.
Good for the initiative.

I bought my torch for $349, the stand another $50. As soon as your run is over, they get you back on the bunny bus to go back to the staging area. An official takes your torch, opens it and removes the fuel cartridge. They also remove some ignition thingie, close it up and hand it back. I ran with the torch in Chilliwack. Wonderful experience. My torch is not for sale. Some day, my future grandkids may want to take it to show and tell.
