Free Running Summer Camp Success

Posted: 18/10/2016

City West worked in partnership with Evolve (a Parkour/Free running company based in Salford), Lancashire County Cricket Club Foundation, GMP and Forestry Commission to deliver a successful 2 week free running camp outdoors at Clifton Green.

The sessions run by Evolve and LCCCF every week saw over 30 young people attending each day. The final event on 12th August was a fantastic Showcase, which was supported strongly by family, friends, local councillors and partnership agencies.

The sun shone down as the young people of Clifton wowed us with the skills that they had developed - back flipping, somersaulting, cartwheeling and vaulting their way around the course!

The young people throughout the camp also helped to clear the area of rubbish on a daily basis and set up and dismantle the course every day.

Due to the success of the project, we are continuing to work with all partnership agencies involved to successfully source funding to enable the sessions to run during school holidays.
