Parkour Competitions in 2017

While parkour is certainly an incredibly enjoyable activity, one of the main reasons that people go for it is because of the fact that they want to show off how good they are. This is why when people take part in parkour competitions they are actually fulfilling the spirit of parkour even more than someone who takes part in it as casually as possible. If you want to start taking part in parkour competitions you need to start training as much as possible so that you are able to succeed, and you also need to learn the names of all of these parkour competitions so that you can find out what their requirements are.

Here is a list of some of the best parkour competitions that are going to be happening in the year of 2017!



This is one of those competitions that just has a tendency to blow other competitions out of the water. Suffice it to say that when you go to New York to take part in PKNY, you are setting yourself up to meet the most free runners you have ever seen in one place before.

This is because of the fact that free runners are not just competitors, they are social animals as well and they need to be able to interact with like-minded people. Hence, PKNY has always been a lot more than competitions, even though the competitions are certainly an extremely important part of the overall vibe. PKNY is also a place where free runners can just come and take part in the wondrous sport that they are all passionate about, where they can find people that would be just as excited as they are to enjoy themselves. You can meet a lot of people that you could become friends with while winning some amazing competitions!


National Championships

This is where things start getting really serious. Getting ahead in a national championship is what is going to allow you to enjoy your career as a free runner and start to get people’s respect. Taking part in free running competitions of this magnitude is extremely stressful and highly exhausting, so you should try your best to make sure that you know what you are getting into. If you are good enough, you might even win!


The Allstar Challenge

This is perhaps the closest thing the world of free running has to the big leagues. This is not a competition that is open for all, but should rather be something that you are trying to work towards. Winning major competitions can bag you a ticket to this event where you would be able to compete with some of the best free runners in the world, all of whom would be looking at you as their equal rather than their inferior. Practicing hard enough can get you a spot at this prestigious event, where even if you lose you will have had the time of your life.
