Dear members, participating runners and volunteers, friends, visitors and supporters of the Society for the Revival of the Nemean Games,
We are in a very unpleasant position: we are forced to announce to you the POSTPONEMENT of the 7th Revival of the Nemean Games, which was set to take place next June (June 26, 27 and 28, 2020).
This unanimous decision of the Board of Directors was taken after a lengthy deliberation by its members, taking into consideration the extremely urgent need to confront the negative and unforeseen consequences on human health brought by the appearance of the Coronavirus COVID-19.
You should know that in the next two months there ought to have taken place many meetings, gatherings and team consultations for the organization of the Games, something which is now impossible due to this critical situation that tortures the whole planet.
On the other hand, we believe that such a great and global event of happiness, as the Modern Nemean Games, such an athletic and cultural celebration, could not stand next to so much sorrow and death within the global community, neither would it ever be proper to hold a global fair like this under pressure and misery, with the presence of only few people!
The above reasons, our interest in our fellow man, as well as the protection of global health, are the reasons that dictate to us this unhappy decision!
We apologize, but hope for your understanding.
With the wish that we all be healthy and strong, let us renew our rendezvous for the 7th Revival of the Nemean Games in the summer of 2021.
The Board of Directors of the S.R.N.G.
