COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Hardcore parkour!
That’s what went down at Acacia Park Saturday during JUMPfest — America’s largest parkour retreat.
More than 400 athletes from all over the globe spent the week climbing and flipping their way to a cure all while raising money for breast cancer research.
More than $16,000 is expected to go toward the National Breast Cancer Foundation.
Parkour is a method of physical training that involves athletes aiming to get from one point to another in a complex environment, in the fastest and most efficient way possible. It originated in France as “parcours du combattant,” the classic obstacle course method of military training.
