Natural Born Heroes

Parkour Generations is proud to be a part of the launch of the new book by critically acclaimed author of ‘Born To Run’, Chris McDougall.


His new book, ‘Natural Born Heroes: The Lost Secrets of Strength and Endurance’, features parkour heavily and in particular, our very own Shirley Darlington and Dan Edwardes. To celebrate the launch of the book, Parkour Generations is joing Chris in his book tour, starting with an event tomorrow night at Brooklyn Boulders, Somerville, Masschusetts. The event will features presentations by Chis, PKG director Dan Edwardes, and parkour cinematographer Julie Angel, along with a parkour intro workshop run by Dan and the PKG Americas team. You can find full details for that event and tickets to attend at:ย


Later, on the 14th May, we are joining Chris again for the UK launch of the book at Conway Hall, London. Admission to this event includes a copy of the book and a 50% discount offer on VivaBarefoot shoes, and will feature talks and Q&As from Chris, Dan and Shirley, alongside a parkour demo. Full details and tickets for that event are at


And finally, on the 16th May, we’ll be hosting a FREE parkour taster workshop at our very own Chainstore Gym & Parkour Academy in East London, with Chris in attendance getting stuck in to some parkour action right alongside you. Pre-registration is required for this event and spaces are limited, so make sure to get your name down now! You can register for this workshop at
