The event is being hosted by Origins Parkour & Athletic Facility, a parkour gym that opend its doors last September.
“They can expect to see stuff that they probably would otherwise think is impossible at this event,” Rene Scavington, owner and head coach of Origins Parkour said.
“If anything, we’re trying to advertise it as like a cheaper version of Cirque du Soleil,” he said with a laugh. “…Without all the theatrics and stuff, but you’ll get to see the same calibre of skill for sure.”
The organizers hope that this event will help set a standard for future competitions.
“The people that designed it and the people that we got feedback from are actual athletes. We’re listening to athletes,” he said. “We’re also athletes ourselves, so we know the kind of things that we want to do and want to see in competitions.”
