Paris 2024 Olympic Games: where and when will the Olympic flame pass in the Nord and Pas-de-Calais

Pas-de-Calais:

  • Calais
  • Boulogne-sur-Mer
  • Berk
  • Saint-Omer
  • Olhain
  • Arras
Many towns in the Nord and Pas-de-Calais will see the Olympic flame pass at the beginning of July.

When ?

From Marseille, the Olympic flame will slowly rise towards Lyon, the center of France then Alsace and Champagne-Ardenne. She will be in Reims on June 30 and will arrive in Lille on July 2. She will cross the other northern cities on the same day before returning the next day, July 3Pas-de-Calais with destination Lens-Liévin. She will take the opportunity to stop in the towns of the department listed above and there will be a mandatory stopover at the Bollaert stadium and the Louvre-Lens museum.

Which torchbearers?

If 11,000 flame bearers will take turns across France, we do not yet know their exact number in the departments of Nord and Pas-de-Calais alone. On the other hand, we are starting to know their names: we will notably find Victoire Berteau, French road cycling champion in 2023 and eighth in Paris-Roubaix 2024, Maxime Beaumont, famous Boulogne kayaker and 2016 Olympic vice-champion, or even David Sombé, 400m specialist based in Lille, who became world vice-champion in the 4x400m relay last year in Budapest.

You can find the portrait of the flame bearers of the region on a page dedicated to them on La Voix du Nord.
