April 2016 Parkour and freeruning Event Recap and Highlights

An Event Worth Talking About

With the passing of another great SPF competition, we have all kinds of parkour and freerunning action from the event to share with the community. Here at Scottsdale Parkour we love to see returning competitors reaching new levels every time they compete, and by having a video record of events we hope to preserve the story of our parkour community's growth. One of the first things any newcomer will notice when training in our community is the emphasis put on self improvement. while parkour can be a competitive sport, everyone also understands that we all become stronger when we support out fellow traceurs.

Parkour

Competitors of the Scottsdale Parkour Freerunning challenge had two separate events open for entry. The fist event, Parkour style, began with competitors racing head to head through a custom made parkour obstacle course in our ninja warrior gym. When racing, every step counts, as even the slightest misstep could mean the difference between getting the top time or falling in the ranks. After the speed rounds competitors moved on to take on our 15 minutes to win it challenge. As the name implies this challenge is timed with competitors doing their best to fully complete all 7 parkour specific challenges in the parkour gym.

Freerunning

The second event in our SPF challenge brings us away from specific movements and courses and puts the focus on an athletes creativity with movement. The FreeRunning Event was judged based on Three criteria with the accumulation of those scores added up to produce a final score. As a competitor creates a run the three criteria judges will be looking for are execution, difficulty, and fluidity. Check out the judges page to learn more about our special guest judges Luke Albrecht, Marcus Paul Wilson, and Anthony Spoon.
