The games include a 100m race that will take place inside the ancient theater of Nemea and a 7,500m race that will start from the temple of Hercules in Ancient Cleones and end at the ancient theater.

The event will honor the memory of archaeologist Stephen Miller who discovered the ancient stadium of Nemea.
