Concordia to Host Parkour Group Steel City Freerunners

Cabot, PA - Concordia Lutheran Ministries is hosting a free live performance and demonstration by the Parkour group Steel City Freerunners on Tuesday Aug. 7 at 7 p.m. in Haven I (112 Marwood Rd.).

Parkour is sweeping across inner cities and college campuses and popping up in TV and action films. This gravity- and death-defying sport focuses on moving around obstacles with speed and efficiency, and requires no special equipment other than a pair of sneakers and a fierce determination. It can be done anywhere from rooftops to walls and scaffolding. The group will explain this new extreme sport and demonstrate how they take a direct path through obstacles.

Parkour has expanded from the French Special Forces to the Paris suburbs and is growing around the world. See what it's all about as some of the affiliate athletes of the World Freerunning Parkour Federation (WFPF) come and perform in person and answer questions.
