The Olympic torch route has been revealed today along with the information that the historical torch will arrive in England on 28th May 2012 when the relay will begin.

Olympic torch relay routeStarting in Land’s End, the most southern and western part of the country the relay will take 70 days  as it is travels around the United Kingdom before arriving in London on 27th July for the Olympic 2012 opening ceremony.

I’m really pleased to see that my home town and location of Bath-Knight headquarters, Stoke-On-Trent is receiving the honour of the torch passing through on 30th May.

The torch will be carried by 8000 torch bearers as it relays the country, and the lucky torch bearers will be those who have an active role within sports and are nominated for their hard work and outstanding achievements in sports.

The torch bearers will offer a huge variety of talent and I am really looking forward to finding out if anybody from the local area will be given the honour.

The relay is a great opportunity for everyone to get a glimpse at the Olympics- I read that the torch relay will mean that 95 per cent of the population will be within a one-hour journey of the relay, which I find quite astonishing.

Visit the official Olympic 2012 website to nominate a torch bearer and to find more details about the torch relay with information about towns and cities which the torch will visit.
