Community Games Relay
Celebrating the Olympic Torch Relay one year on, Community Games will be honouring people who have helped bring the Olympic spirit to life in their local communities. Mirroring the Olympic Torch Relay route, there will be an event every day during the 70 day Community Games Relay in England, with each one putting the spotlight a on a local volunteer.
Welcome to the Community Games!
People up and down the country are registering their Community Games, and we have just add the 500th Games registered for this summer!
Summing up all that is good about Community Games, the Brixton Bolt, taking place at the end of July is the 500th Games to be registered. First held last year to celebrate the incredible achievements of Usain Bolt at London 2012, the organisers are promising that this year's event will be bigger and better. With an opening and closing ceremony as well as entertainment throughout the day, all ages will be able to take part in a variety of races right in the middle of Brixton. The local Council have agreed to close a main road, local businesses are providing prizes, and money raised on the day will be going to the Evelina Children's Hospital in Lambeth.
If this has inspired you to organise an event for your local community, you can find out more by, ‘Expressing Your Interest’ and a local member of the Community Games Team will be in touch.
