Heraean Games

 

The Heraean Games is an all women's fitness competition put on by Fashletics® and South Florida CrossFit Endurance.  The competition is held annually at Miami SunLife Stadium in Sunrise, Florida. We are proud to announce that the 4th Annual Heraean Games will be taking place February 15th, 2014.

In the 6th Century BC The Heraean Games were established as the first official all women’s athletic competition. The event was held every four years in the stadium of Olympia in honor of the Goddess Hera.

Spartan Women in particular were encouraged to train in the same athletic events as men and usually dominated at the Heraean Games as a result.  These women played a significant role in Spartan history and were often viewed as warriors themselves.

Over 2000 years later, Fashletics and South Florida CrossFit Endurance proudly bring you the return of The Heraean Games to honor the spirit of an all female competition.

 

"There's no bond like the kind that Crossfit women share. 

Sisters in iron, sweat, pain and glory."
