Paralympic Torch Relay Route Revealed

This map shows The final planned route for the Paralympics Torch Relay. The planned torch relay route will cross "Paralympic cities" from Beijing (host city of the 13th Paralympic Games) to Vancouver (host city of the 10th Paralympic Winter Games in 2010) to London (host city of the 14th Paralympic Games in 2012) to Sochi (host city of the 11th Paralympic Winter Games in 2014) to Hong Kong (co-host city of the 13th Paralympics, equestrian events). The two other routes will be the "Modern China" and "Ancient China" routes. The "Modern China" route will cross Shenzhen, Chongqing, Wuhan, Shanghai, Qingdao, Dalian and Tianjin and the "Ancient China" route will cross Huangdi Mausoleum, Xi'an, Hohhot, Urumqi, Chengdu, Changsha, Nanjing and Luoyang. The three torches will finally meet in Beijing and light the main cauldron at the opening ceremony of the Beijing 2008 Paralympic Games on September 6, 2008.

China is expecting next year's 2008 Special Olympic Games to be the largest & record-breaking event in it's history. The Paralympics Games sites will be the same as the venues used for the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games which will finish just a few days before the Paralympic Games Opening ceremony. Incidentally, the 2008 Paralympics received record-breaking volunteer applications as well.
