Spring Gathering Hits the Peak District

This year sees the first annual Spring Thing – a national 2-day training and camping event in the glorious Peak District on May 25/26, organised and run by  affiliate organisation Parkour Generations.

Parkour Generations presents two days of training amongst the incredible terrain of the Peak District National Park. Discover new textures, surfaces, angles and movements  – all under the expert supervision of experienced coaches.

Details you need to know:

When:  Saturday 25th & Sunday 26th May 2013

Where: Stanage Edge, Peak District National Park, Derbyshire

What: 2 days of training, workshops and fun

Cost:  2 days including tent pitch for Friday and Saturday nights – £65 1 day (no camping) –  £35

How to book: Go to the Event Page, and further details regarding the camp will be emailed to all participants closer to the event date.

The event will expose everyone to all the core elements of what is involved in Parkour training in nature and is both a great place for beginners to start as well as an excellent training experience for experienced practitioners.

The natural terrain of the Peak District National Park offers new challenges even to experienced practitioners; the lack of uniform edges and angles can often require a different, more measured, carefully focused approach. Distances can feel different and the varied surfaces and textures often require a greater understanding of the body in relation to its environment. A Spring Thing gives you the opportunity to explore and experiment with the natural surroundings under the supervision of an experienced coach who will guide your discovery and develop your potential, both physically and psychologically.

This event joins the existing annual Winter and Summer national events, Winterval and Rendezvous, also run by Parkour Generations.
