The Olympic torch passes through all 5 continents on its 79 day journey.
WWE Wrestling Bout?
I don't want to give away too much, but it ends with the lighting of a large flame.
Will and Guy have established that communities across Britain are planning a series of eccentric spectacles: from shin kicking to wool sack racing, as part of the Olympic torch relay this summer in 2012.
In the run-up to London 2012, the eyes of the world will be on the Olympic flame as it tours Britain in an 8,000-mile relay; as the torch arrives in towns and villages across the country, locals will seize the opportunity to show off the British talent for traditional and eccentric pastimes, from cheese-rolling to Morris dancing.
Brass bands, choirs and amateur dramatics troupes are also being recruited to perform, as local authorities take responsibility for organising festivities at each location along the route.
Elsewhere, the torch relay is being used as an excuse for that other great British tradition: fancy dress.
In Higham, Kent, locals will wear costumes inspired by Charles Dickens, a former resident, while in nearby Gravesend, women will dress up as Pocahontas, the daughter of an American Indian chief who came to live in the town.
In Ludlow, Shropshire, togas will be worn, while an Edwardian-themed Olympics is being planned in Durham. Other areas are using the relay as a chance to highlight local crafts and delicacies.
The Torch Route
The torch will be lit at the site of the ancient games in Greece, where it was burned in honour of the gods and to signify peace between competitors.
It will be transported to the UK, arriving in Land's End on 18th May 1, then will pass through more than 1,000 villages, towns and cities before reaching the Olympic Stadium in east London on 27th July 27.
On its way it is to take a number of unusual methods of transport, including the Flying Scotsman railway engine through North Yorkshire, an Isle of Man TT sidecar, a chair lift at the Needles, Isle of Wight and a Ceredigion cob horse in Aberavon, west Wales.
An average of 115 people a day will carry the flame - each holding it for an average distance of 300 metres. The precise route is also still being kept secret by organisers and will be revealed only nearer the time.
