Commonwealth Games Wales

Queen's Baton Relay 2017

From the 4th to 9th September 2017, Wales will be host to the Queen's Baton, where it will be travelling over 350 miles of Welsh land covering South, Mid and North Wales. The Baton will spend a total of two days in South Wales, one day in Mid Wales and one day in North Wales.

The route will be the largest relay to date in Wales and it will incorporate mythical legend locations as part of Visit Wales' Year of the Legends Campaign' which will enhance and showcase the rich history and heritage that Wales has to offer. 

Our vision is to stage a great Queen's Baton Relay that embraces the Commonwealth's diversity, ignites community pride, excites the Commonwealth about the GC2018 and encourages support for the annual Commonwealth theme. It will be our mission to deliver a Queen's Baton Relay that is accessible to all members of the Commonwealth that promotes and celebrates the long-lasting benefits and values of the Commonwealth Games.
