Project Z Parkour are proud to host Manchester Takeover in collaboration with Free Spirit Parkour. The Takeover is a city wide parkour street competition held in the heart of Manchester!
Competitors have 7 hours to complete as many of our 50+ hand picked parkour skill challenges as possible. These challenges are located all across Manchester town centre and can be located using the map page below once the challenges go live on the day of the event.
The scoring is simple: for every challenge completed, the Manchester Takeover competitors will earn 1 point towards their total score. The competitor with the most challenges completed at end of the competition will take home the title of “Champion of Manchester”… And also a cash prize.
To submit challenges, competitors must film themselves completing the challenge and upload the clip to an Instagram story tagging @ProjectZParkour or @FreeSpiritParkour before the competition cut off time.
There are separate divisions for male and female competitors with prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place in both divisions.
Participation of transgender and non-binary competitors will follow the recently published USPKA trans-inclusion policy.
Due to the associated risk involved with some of the challenges set, all participants must be age 16 years and over ⚠️
