An amazing sporting souvenir, this is your chance to own a piece of history!
I was lucky enough to be picked to take part in the London 2012 Olympic torch relay. I was honoured to be nominated and the experience of running with the torch was perhaps the best thing I have ever done. It was a magical day with thousands of people lining the streets and cheering the progress of the torch. I will remember it for the rest of my life.
You can see my nomination by clicking this link –
This torch was used on day 69 (26th July 2012) of the London 2012 Olympic torch relay and I carried it through the City of London. I ran leg 37 at about 9.05 am. I ran along New Change (next to St Paul’s Cathedral) and finished on Newgate Street.
Along with the torch comes a fabric cover and a Medium sized Uniform (which has been hand washed).

It has been pointed out to me that the uniform top is different to most of the tops issued for the relay. I've discovered that these tops were issued to some of the runners for the London relay legs and are consequently very rare. The difference is they have no collar. I have asked to be supplied with a top with the collar - the organisers are sympathetic and will try to get one to me. If they send it to me I will forward it to the successful bidder.
I will also provide copies of all my email correspondence relating to the torch relay.
I am still waiting to be sent my torch bearers handbook and associated paperwork if/when it comes to me I will forward to whoever wins the auction.
Thanks for your interest.

I have just recieved the following information from the Torch Team:
"Both designs of uniforms given to Torchbearers were designed specifically for Torchbearers taking part in the Olympic Torch Relay and were worn by a variety of people including some of our high profile Torchbearers. The uniform you wore during your Torchbearer leg is one for you to keep as a memento of your Moment to Shine and we are unfortunately unable to send an alternative. We will however be sending out certificates of participation in the Olympic Torch Relay in September."
Therefore, there is only one uniform top and I will forward the certificate to the highest bidder in September.
