Roman Army and Chariot Experience
For an increasingly demanding tourist population in Jordan, a privately held company has been formed that owns the rights to and manages the staging of daily presentations of Roman warfare techniques and chariot races in the genuine Roman hippodrome in Jerash.
The formal name selected for this new entity is The Jerash Heritage Company.
As per its agreement with the Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities, RACE has leased the hippodrome and adjacent areas in Jerash from the Government of Jordan.
RACE is a privately held, limited liability company, registered under
the laws of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan. With some fifty employees,
it is one of the largest employers in Jerash, and enjoys the strong backing
of the Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities and the Jordan Tourism Board.
