Queen's Relay Baton at The Helix

Queen's Relay Baton at the Helix

In Scotland from 22-26 August 2017, the presence of the Baton will bring Gold Coast 2018 one step closer for athletes and supporters, as Team Scotland aims for its best ever medal haul at an overseas Games.

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 Queen's Baton carries a message from Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II that calls the Commonwealth's athletes to come together in peaceful and friendly competition.

Come along and cheer on the Queen's Baton as it arrives at The Helix on the 25th of August from 12.30pm - 2pm ready to meet the Kelpies on Day 4 of the Scottish leg of the Baton tour.
