Team Ireland Pass the Torch Challenge


In collaboration with the Olympic Federation of Ireland, to mark what was due to be the Opening Ceremony for Tokyo 2020 on July 24th, Circle K has created the ‘Pass The Torch Challenge’.

Pass The Torch Challenge

To show Irish Olympic athletes that Circle K and the rest of the country are still ‘Here for Ireland’, and to support athletes on their journey to Japan, we want to invite people across the country to take part and get behind Team Ireland.


We are asking the Irish public to take part by sharing your videos on Instagram, Facebook & Twitter using @Circlekireland and #KeepItLit, #PassTheTorch #HereForIreland.

Participants virtually ‘pass the torch’ via video from the left side of their screen to the right.

You can get as creative as possible at home…put on your country colours, fly the Irish flag, run, walk, wave, even throw your torch in the air, baton style! We will bring together content from the public and athletes from around the country and share on Circle K’s social media channels. We have a downloadable torch template available on the Circle K website for you to customise and use in your own videos.

For the chance to win a €250 One For ALL voucher,  share your video and tag @circlekireland using the hashtags, and have you will also have the chance for your video to play alongside Irish Olympic athletes. So get creative and most importantly HAVE SOME FUN!
