Category Descriptions:


The speed competition is run as an obstacle course style event where the competitors are given a clear start and end point. The competitors are then given three attempts at the course.

The fastest time out of the three will be compared against those of the other competitors. The top 8 times will be put through into a final round on a new course where the winners will be determined.

The speed competition is run in all age brackets.


Style is the traditional parkour and freerunning competition format which involves the comeptitor showing off their full range of parkour skills.

For style, the competitors make a ‘line’ or routine which is a series of their own parkour skills put together one after the other.

The competitors are allowed 15 minutes for Under 12yrs and 30 minutes for Under 16yrs and Open to prepare their series of skills. During this time competitors may use crash mats to practice their line and any harder skills. After the allocated time is up all mats will be taken away apart from the permanent large blue mats. The parkour area is cleared and the competitors are called individually to present their line to the audience and judges.

Score out of 5 for:

Difficulty, Execution, Creativity & Flow


The competitors are given a score out of 5 for each of the following categories:

  • DIFFICULTY: Difficulty is given by how hard the skills displayed are. Difficulty will be scored relative to the age bracket. For example; a double cat pass or webster for an U12 competitor would contribute to a difficulty score of 5. Whereas the same skills in the OPEN category would merit a difficulty of 2 or 3.
