Commonwealth Games Wales

The Route in Wales

On the 13th March 2017, Commonwealth Games Wales announced the official Welsh route of the Queen's Baton Relay. Commonwealth Games Wales, working with many partners, has designed a route with several events linking together a variety of communities to showcase Wales today and fully embrace the rich, diverse and cultural heritage that our great nation has to offer.

We recognise and appreciate that not every community within Wales will have the opportunity to be host to the Baton in this year's celebrations, however over the course of the 4 days, it is our objective to visit as many different parts of Wales as possible.

The high-level route of the Queen's Baton Relay 2017 in Wales is outlined below:  

Day 1 - 5th September
