The Queen’s Baton Relay (QBR) is one of the great traditions of the Commonwealth whereby the Commonwealth nations gather together to celebrate the Games! The QBR is known to be the traditional curtain raiser to the Games!
The QBR 2010 Delhi will showcase India to the world as the baton traverses 70 Commonwealth nations via a 240-day journey, culminating with a 100-day tour of India. The baton started its journey on October 29th, 2009 at Buckingham Palace where Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II handed over the baton to the host nation, India. The baton contains a special message from Her Majesty that will be read at the Opening Ceremony of the XIX Commonwealth Games on October 3, 2010.
The QBR 2010 Delhi arrives in Canada from Bermuda on April 14th. A number of special events and activities will take place in Toronto on the 14th. On April 15th additional activities are scheduled for Ottawa before the baton makes it way to its next stop – Australia.
