Free running on the streets
Free running on the streets
What free runners do is both very visually enticing and also physically demanding. Free running is a form of running, which combines acrobatics, and jumping to make a wonderful amalgamation of the three. It may not be a sport but it is a discipline with many people practicing it around the world. It has cultural ties to things like skateboarding, surfing, snowboarding and street cycling. What makes it look so fun to watch is the fact that free runners have managed to find a way to make running cool. Running is usually a pretty solitary and boring activity, but free running is exciting and demanding and looks like it would be a lot of fun to participate in. Free running is basically when people run and perform flips and jump off of high platforms while lading in a rolling fashion so as not to hurt them. It takes a lot of practice to do and people spend years doing it before they get really good at it. Free running as a concept is one that is all about the outdoors and connecting with an urban environment. It is all about people adapting their hobbies and sports to reflect their surroundings.
