Urban running

tjen June 6th, 2007

A little something for the ones who like concrete fitness and a solid workout.

Check out these mad video’s!

It’s Parkour! Free running, urban running and a bit of Wushu. Parkour, derived from the french word ‘parcour’, is not for the faint-hearted.

Enjoy.

    Skillful madmen these guys from 3run.

    Are there any parkour events you know of?

    I don’t know any parkour activities in the region yet, but I sometimes jump over fences, tiles and obstacles myself.
    By the way, Wushu is a martial arts form. Most people who practice parkour (and are good at it) usually have a gymnastics and/or martial arts background.

    I am currently actively participating in Parkour, and a little freerunning (it is important to keep them different, freerunning has tricks, Parkour is pure movement) Parkour takes more than just fitness commitment, it is a mental challenge to force yourself to try something new and then master it, go to PKAus to find out some parkour tips and pics!

    Looks like a healthy parkour scene in Australia.
    Keep up the good work!
