Parkouring – new urban adventures

runParkour can be described as a creative way of getting from A to B quickly and efficiently, using only your body and the physical surroundings to propel yourself. It can include running, jumping, sliding, vaulting, rolling and more.
Parkour is non-competitive. It may be performed on an obstacle course, but is usually practiced in a creative (and sometimes playful) reinterpretation or subversion of urban spaces.Parkour involves ‘seeing’ one’s environment in a new way, and imagining the potentialities for movement around it.[Wikipedia]
In Tim Sinclair’s exciting new novel ‘Run’, Dee invents an alternate world to escape his mundane life. With parkour he is not running away – but he is free. Sinclair uses the visual text to add to his narrative.
