Freerunning & Parkour Comp BURGH 2018
Burgh will host the second Parkour and Speed Competition for the Illawarra Region on Saturday, 3rd November 2018.
Hugely successful in 2017, the event attracted over 600 people from as far as Canberra and Sydney to showcase their unique talent.
Special International Guest Dominic Di Tommaso, a sponsored Red Bull parkour athlete will be in attendance. Dominic will be judging the older divisions and helping with workshops throughout the day.
Redbull’s Wings DJ team plus i98fm Street Fleet will also be rocking up.
This is great family day out. Come as a spectator or a competitor. The day will also be a mini Parkour for the kids, halftime entertainment, skill displays, food, drink and merchandise stalls.
About Parkour and Freerunning
If you haven’t heard of Parkour or Freerunning, chances are you have seen it somewhere. It is quickly becoming the next big thing.
For those of you who are still not sure, think of it like BMX biking or skateboarding, but instead of wheels, all you have is your body to move through obstacles at a fast pace by running, jumping, climbing and vaulting.
This year the event has expanded hosting 5 divisions plus a final in the advanced category.
There are 2 events, Parkour/Freerunning and the Speed Run.
Beginner (from 7yrs) – Intermediate – Advanced (Heat & Final) Divisions
Intermediate – Advanced Divisions
The students at Burgh Healthy Hub have grown passionate about this sport and this event gives a thrilling platform to showcase and compete at a professional level, as well as bringing the parkour community together and expanding our forces.
Our own local talent is growing by the minute especially with our core group Jesse, Declan, Tom & Owen, who make up Renegade (check out their Instagram).
