The 2010 Torch Relay Route

The torch is  getting ready to light the flame on February 12th, 2010 as we begin another two weeks of bliss. The torch started in Greece, where all others do, and from there flew to Canada where it began the longest torch relay ever to take place in just one country.

Starting on October 30th in Victoria, British Columbia, the torch will travel over 35,000 kilometers. The closest it will come to me is when it passes through Winkler, Manitoba on January 7th 2010. It will fly to almost the northernmost point of Canada, as far west as just a few miles away from Alaska, and as far East as St. Johns. The route will cover big cities such as Montreal, Toronto and Calgary, but it will also hit Yellowknife, Whitehorse, and Iqaluit. At one point the torch will be roughly 7,000 km away from its intended destination and still be in the same country. It should be a great ride.
