The New Nemean Games

The New Nemean Games are an attempt to bring back to life the ancient festivals that were based, like the Olympics, on athletic competitions.  There will be foot races for competitors from around the world who are at least 8 years of age.  Younger children (over 5 years old) may also participate, but ALWAYS with their parents’ responsibility. There is no upper age limit.  The races will be 90 m. in length, and the runners will be grouped by age and by gender.  These will be the basic events of a day-long assembly of thousands of spectators, likewise from around the world.  Interspersed with the races will be music and dance by local groups.  At the end of the day there will be a 7.5 km. race — “The Footsteps of Herakles”  — from the ancient Temple of Herakles in Kleonai to the ancient stadium of Nemea. The goal is for an international festival in the spirit of brotherhood for everyone set on the ancient earth where first occurred the notion of substituting athletic competition for war.
