Queen’s Baton Relay 2018

The Queen’s Baton Relay is a Games tradition that celebrates the Commonwealth’s diversity, inspires community pride and excites people about the world-class festival of sports and culture to come. The Baton carries a message from Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II that calls the Commonwealth’s athletes to come together in peaceful and friendly competition. The GC2018 Relay will be the longest and the most accessible ever, not just passing through, but spending quality time in each community it visits.

On Saturday 9th September the Queen's Baton Relay will arrive in Guernsey and will spend 4 days in the Bailiwick before departing for Jersey.
