Powys Route for 2018 Commonwealth Games Queen’s Baton Relay

The Queen’s Baton Relay will visit Powys this September during its 388-day journey through the Commonwealth. 

The Powys route is part of the 230,000 kilometer journey to the baton’s final destination - The Gold Coast Commonwealth Games in Australia in April 2018.

The baton will spend four days in Wales, making its way through Powys on September 7 as part of a journey through every nation and territory within the commonwealth in the build up to the opening ceremony. 

Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Communications Cllr Wynne Jones, said: “We are delighted to be welcoming the Queen’s Baton Relay to Powys once again. 

“As the baton travels through the county, it’s an opportunity to celebrate our rich heritage, culture, beautiful landscapes and the Welsh language on an international stage. 

“The Powys route will begin in Brecon, travel up to Rhayader for a public street event before stopping at Llanidloes high and primary schools and a private photo stop in Llandinam.

“It will then travel to the new Welsh-medium Ysgol Dafydd Llwyd in Newtown, before a final stop in the county at Welshpool.

“I hope having the Queen’s Baton in Powys will ignite pride in our county and Welsh athletes competing in the games. Plans are at an early stage but we look forward to putting on memorable activities to mark this exciting occasion.”

Chris Jenkins, Commonwealth Games Wales Chief Executive, said: “We’re extremely proud to announce this route. The Relay will give everyone a chance to be involved in an unforgettable experience.”
