Carrying the Torch: A Once-in-a-Lifetime Opportunity
The torch was primarily transported by people, passing the flame from torch bearer to torch bearer. The relay also employed other modes of conveyance that are symbolic of the history and heritage of Indiana, including watercraft, farm equipment, a racecar, horse and wagon, antique automobile, and others.
Patterned after the Olympic Torch Relay, Indiana’s version passed through all 92 of the state’s counties, covered 3200 miles over a five week period, averaging 90 miles per day.
