The AYG Baton Relay will involve all participating primary schools.

The baton will travel around the city in the weeks prior to the AYG Festival of Sport, increasing excitement about the festival as well as celebrating sport and physical activity in every school.

Schools are set challenges for when the baton visits them, such as a competition to see which school manages to pass the baton around the most pairs of hands, to the most novel and active way of transporting the baton to its next school.
