Briefings will be held in major centres along the route two days in advance of the arrival of the Relay.
Runners meet the Relay at collection points to which they are returned after they have completed carrying the Baton. These collection points provide opportunities for newspapers, radio and television to interview several runners after they have completed their run with the Baton.
Lunch stops and evening celebrations at the end of the Relay each day are normally used as collection points. Civic dignitaries and senior Relay staff will also often be present at these locations.
The media can also approach individual Relay Runners on the road side just before or just after their runs however journalists should be aware that the window for such interviews is very short: the Relay cannot stop while interviews are concluded. Detailed, street-level route information is available on this website.
A special media area with unobstructed views of the celebration stage is provided at most evening celebration sites.
The BBC, the Relay’s Official Broadcast Partner, has exclusive rights to broadcast LIVE from evening celebration sites, however other television and radio stations are welcome to attend and record their own reports.
