  1. You’ve seen it on television, in films, and viral internet clips, now the highly dangerous extreme sport of ‘free running’ has been crafted into an exciting theatrical production.
    Free Run stars local free running team 3Run, credited with the opening scene to James Bond film, Casino Royale and holders of over 15 world records.
