Christmas Cruise - Olympia Race Track

These pictures are of the race track at Olympia. Everything has pretty much deteriorated away after several earthquakes and several thousand years but the original starting/finish line is still there. Rather than racing in a circle like they do today, they ran back and forth between two lines. All of the mondern 40 meter, 100 meter, 200 meter, etc. races originated with this.

Not gonna lie, I'm a little jealous. Looks pretty awesome.
