The format of the Parkour Challenge Night is similar to that of a climbing meet. 15-20 parkour tasks/routes/challenges are marked for everyone to try within a time limit. The scores will be tallied and those with the highest scores will, if they chose to, do higher difficulty challenges set up for others to watch.
The challenge night is a creation of Dan Iaboni and will be catered to all levels. The intent is to engage the community, acknowledging there are people of all levels participating and to make it fun for all. Fun for all.
