Parkour Visions Spring competition is this weekend – competitors and spectators welcome

February 25th, 2013 by Laura Fonda

Parkour Visions is hosting another parkour obstacle course this weekend – you may recall the November competition, and this one is set up in a similar fashion. It’s open to those 14 years and up with basic parkour experience who are comfortable running the course. And, if you’re just interested in watching the competition, it’s free for spectators.

The course tests speed, balance, power, and efficiency through 3 unique obstacle courses at the gym on Nickerson St. All competitors get multiple attempts on each course; the competitor with the best overall time wins.

The competition kicks off this Friday, March 1st with the Adults event from 6pm-9pm. The Kids event is set for Saturday, March 2nd, 5pm-8pm. If you want to compete, the entrance fee is $25 per competitor, and free for Unlimited Parkour Visions members.

If you missed the last competition, here’s a video of the event – it’ll give you a flavor of what to expect, whether you compete or cheer for the competitors:
