The baton will travel across Wales over four days in September ahead of the Gold Coast games in April 2018.

Chris Jenkins, Commonwealth Games Wales chief executive, said the route would “give everyone that can’t make it to the Gold Coast a chance to be involved in an unforgettable experience”.

In total, it will travel 142,915 miles (230,000 km) in its 388-day journey.

The baton will be passed between people as it makes its way from south to north Wales from 5 to 8 September

“Former pupil Lewis Oliva OM03-10, who is part of the British Cycling Squad, has competed in two Commonwealth Games and will be competing on the Gold Coast, will meet the relay team on their whistle-stop visit to Monmouth School in September 2017.

Hopefully there will be other past Olympians and Commonwealth Games alumni here to inspire the next generation of athletes.” Simon Dorman Deputy Head Monmouth School
