Sleepover and Parkour never seemed like an appropriate pairing until this weekend.

The latest training discipline craze, Parkour, involving obstacles, running, jumping and all around impressive feats of strength and agility, has found a local home at King of Prussia’s Main Line Parkour — a 9,000 square foot center devoted to the sport. Over the course of four days, Friday, Aug. 29 through Monday, Sept. 1, the facility is holding an end-of-summer festival with an optional sleepover option for kids who go hardcore for Parkour.

Starting on Friday, Aug. 29 the gym will be available for open activities from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.  

The good stuff gets going at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Aug. 30 when Main Line Parkour holds a Spartan Race where young participants will race around the gym in the style of “American Ninja Warrior.” The gym will be open until 8 p.m. as well.

On Sunday, Aug. 31 area break dancers should show off their best skills during the break dance and tricking competition, starting at 10 p.m. The rest of the day is yours as the venue is also open until 8 p.m. for open activities.

The weekend rounds out with a competition where elements of Parkour are tested, followed by a free gym session on Monday, Sept. 1, beginning at 10 a.m. After that, Main Line Parkour’s gym will be open until 5:30 p.m.

Throughout the entire weekend, your best patriotic attire is requested, because you never know, your garb could win you best dressed.
