The Bicentennial torch will be relayed from Bethesda Park Senior Center (225 Bethesda Church Road, Lawrenceville) to Mountain Park Public Library (1210 Pounds Road SW, Lilburn). At approximately 3:00pm, members from Gwinnett Public High School cross country and track teams will serve as torchbearers in this yearlong torch relay that will cover approximately 200 miles. Runners will carry the torch to historic sites, public facilities, and cities in Gwinnett throughout 2018, the bicentennial celebration year. The Gwinnett County Bicentennial Torch Relay represents goodwill, the connection between communities, and Gwinnett County’s journey from 1818 to today, where it transformed from a largely agrarian community to one of the fastest growing, most diverse counties in the Southeast.
