LONDON, 1 OCTOBER 2021: London-based Race Marketing & Management, promoter of the World Parkour Championship, has drawn a line under pursuing the events planned for the remainder of the year and is now fully-focussed on its programme for 2022.
Despite the apparent relaxing of the logistical requirements and complications involved with international travel and the diversity of varied in-country entry requirements still in place due to Covid-19, the obstacles and hurdles that remained have proved insurmountable for the sport’s promoter.
RMM manging director remains upbeat and confirmed that 2022 is now its priority. “Although a tough call, especially after all the effort and support we have received from various organisers and especially our athletes and, along with our partners the International Parkour Federation, we will now channel all our energies into putting together an exciting campaign for 2022”, he said, adding. “We are optimistic that by the turn of the year the obstacles will have been removed and we can move forward.
“There remains a tremendous level of interest in this sport and we will immediately be looking to finalise ongoing discussions with organisers in Turkey, Spain and Mexico to underpin the 2022 calendar.”
