This year we’ve invited our friends at APEX Movement to stage Parkour Jam II. You’ll have a chance to try some parkour moves in and out of the gym, and then at 8pm the pros will be throwing down on a full course. Check out the video from last time when they literally jumped out of our office windows:

Parkour Jam window jump

On top of that we’ve got a full line-up for YOU:

  • First 150 members get limited edition Spot patch (see below, BMR can even heat press it onto your gear that night) as well as a free taco from McDevitt Taco Supply!
  • Huge shoe demo (at least La Sportiva, Scarpa, Red Chili, Tenaya, Evolv) so you can pick out the perfect shoe for fall sending!
  • Vendor village with great deals on partner stuff so bring some cash!
  • Free cold beverages from Avery Brewing and Upstart Kombucha

DID WE MENTION THIS IS FREE FOR EVERYONE?
Bring your friends!!

Spot patchWe’re excited to have Boulder Mountain Repair onsite to heat press our limited edition 2″ Spot patches onto our member’s gear at the event! The item you bring for the patch should be clean and both sides need to be pressed. This will not work well on insulated jackets, shoes, or anything with a smooth nylon finish (many backpacks). Works great on porous fabrics, most pants and shirts, chalkbags, cotton/poly. For long-term placement we recommend adding some stitches around the patch when you get home, or take it to BMR and they’ll do it for you!
