Throughout March, the torch will travel over 100 milesaround Carmarthenshire, starting at Emlyn School and finishing at Ysgol Pantycelyn. The aim is to inspire the county's young peopole in the run up to to the official London 2012 Torch Relay and the Olympic games itself. It will spend at least one day at each of Carmarthenshires' 18 secondary and special schools.
