No Joke, Baton Relay Starts April 1!
April 1st marks the kick-off for the 50th Anniversary Baton Relay which
runs (no pun intended) until the baton reaches the terminal cairn in
Tobermory on June 10 to mark the 50th Anniversary of the opening of
the Bruce Trail. With the help of volunteers, the baton will travel
the entire length of the Bruce Trail. The Bruce Trail Conservancy
(BTC) has commissioned a new Anniversary baton and an Anniversary
badge for volunteers assisting in this historic event.
Beaver Valley hosts the baton from May 7 to 15. The baton will travel
approximately 15 km of trail each day as it moves through our
section. Volunteers are needed every day to move it along its
journey. Contact Glenda Collings at
to volunteer for the event.
BVBTC will post our hike itinerary for the event shortly. Join us on this
epic journey (or just a small part of it) and follow the baton along
the Bruce Trail. Use #brucetrailbaton when sharing your photos and
posts on social media. Help get the word out about the BTC 50th
Anniversary Celebrations in Tobermory on June 10.
