Golympics

Description
Combining sports and Go in one whole outdoor project. Ideas at the moment: running, biking, swimming. For example: “Play a move then race to the clock”.
Objectives
To promote Go in a more active way and provide a fun challenge for all Go players.
Realisation
The event will preferably take place in a warmer season and be done in public, with spectators.
We need to promote the event and motivate Go players. The ideas are still being developed.
Resources
Sporting materials (be available at my home), Go playing materials (preferably magnetic go boards as they are easier to combine with the sports; digital clocks), motivated Go players.
Possibilities of copying this project
It is relatively easy to copy this project and organize this sort of event in other countries. It will probably attract media which is another advantage of this project.
