World Chase Tag is a new sport based around the childhood game of tag, but with parkour based obstacles, timers, teams, and a whole lot more intensity. The court is 40ft x 40ft consisting of platforms, bars, and a slanted barrier around the perimeter. Athletes must try to evade for 20 seconds to score a point.
