The Kid Should See This

A 19 year old freerunner takes on the ‘World’s Largest Parkour Course’

My name is Calen Chan, and this is a FULL POV RUN of the Skyladder Parkour course at Tianman Mountain in China! I had the wonderful opportunity to come and play here at this beautiful location called Heaven’s Gate. It has an average incline of 45 degrees, and is 999 steps long (about 3 football fields)! Obviously this was difficult, and I physically couldn’t sprint down the entire path of deadly drops without slowing down, but I did my best!

Freerunning is a form of parkour that includes more aesthetic acrobatic moves. Chan, 19, is a Utah-based professional freerunner and YouTuber who has spent countless hours practicing these skills with safety in mind. Check out his best of 2016 vid:
