On May 27th, sixty runners will be running sixty miles all the way from the Olympic Stadium to the village via Windsor Great Park to complete our very own torch relay. It is one of the most complex events ever organised in Penn and Tylers Green, and is called “The Right Royal Reverse Run” (R4). It reaches its exciting climax on the Common on Monday 4 June when the very last runner arrives with our own Penn and Tylers Green Olympic flaming torch to light our Beacon, which itself will be something very special.
The 60 runners, all connected with clubs or organisations in the village and all carrying a torch for their designated mile, will complete a specially marked-out course, which takes in Buckingham Palace and Windsor Castle, on Sunday 27 May. The one mile stretch down the Long Walk at Windsor will be completed by relays of children from the village.
The torch will spend a week in the village before being used to ignite our own Beacon on the evening of Monday the fourth. Be there for this historic event.
