For the Saudi Games 2024 torch tour, please note that the torch relay details have not been announced. However, last year, the torch relay was a promotional journey that commenced in Riyadh and covered a distance of 35,000 kilometers, passing through 21 different regions, all while being carried by last year’s champions.

It ultimately returned to the capital on November 21. Along the way, the torch stopped at significant landmarks and tourist destinations that highlighted the Kingdom’s rich history and culture.

The primary goal of the torch relay was to foster a sense of sportsmanship and unity among the people and to serve as an inspiration for the athletes participating in 53 sports, including six Paralympic events.
