Was there really a Johnny Miles? The name sounds too good to be true for a runner. Well, there was. The Nova Scotian won both the 1926 and 1929 Boston Marathons, so his legacy is honoured by way of the Johnny Miles Marathon. The event is held in New Glasgow and is celebrating its 35th anniversary this year. Whether you're in it for the full-blown marathon or the Johnny Walk (a leisure walk for people of all ages), the two-day festivity has events for people of all ages and running experience. –Richard Woodbury
