Free running

Cannot play media. Sorry, this media is not available in your territory.

Keep your eyes open while walking around Reading and Basingstoke and you might spot this group of free runners called 3Run.

Formed by Scott Young from Basingstoke and Curtis Small from Reading, the group started out by practising their 'urban acrobatics', also known as parkour, at Bulmershe Gymnastics Club, in Woodley.

They then started trying out gravity-defying stunts at Festival Place in Basingstoke, Wellington Country Park in Reading and at Reading Train Station.

Reading-based Curtis Small has since found success by acting as a body double for parkour legend Sebastien Foucan in the James Bond film Casino Royale.
