About Ancient Days
On behalf of the Ancient Society, we would like to invite you to the Ancient Days, a unique sports and educational event, which is following the successful events of the Ancient Society held in the previous year (Stathmos, Competition in Ancient Pentathlon, etc.), and which will be our biggest event aimed at popularizing and approaching the theme of antiquity and ancient sport to today's generation.
The event will start with a scientific conference on antiquity and olympism. For the next two days there will be sporting and "military-sports" competitions (running, pentathlon, combative disciplines and kabaddi team play) in different categories. An accompanying program will be prepared for both days - tasting of ancient food and drinks, demonstrations of weapons and armor, scientific equipment, sports equipment, or demonstration of ancient fighting and archery with the opportunity of try your hand. Ancient days will end with an endurance competition in a military twelve-hour march with a load imitating the weight of the equipment of ancient soldiers.
The whole event is designed for participants of all ages, for pupils and youth as well as for adults, women and men. Anyone can compete and we also welcome any spectators.
