Claudiu Voicu - Urban FreeflowWe’ve had exciting sports news all over the capital in the last couple of weeks. From the Athletics Grand Prix to the Olympic Stadium to the Rugby World Cup, sport in London has never looked so strong.

And this trend continues. Trafalgar Square has long been host to some of the world’s coolest events. And this summer is no exception.

Alongside the current excitement of the Fourth Plinth, on Saturday 15 August you can also watch the World Freerunning Championships, for free!

Simply register for free tickets through Facebook. You only need to hand over your name, email and postal address… but you’ll need to be quick! There are just 7,000 places, and you have to register before Wednesday 5 August to be in with a chance of a ticket.

This is only the second year the World Freerunning Championships have taken place.

If you’re lucky enough to get a ticket, you’ll see 27 freerunners from 17 different countries tackling a specially designed course in Trafalgar Square, showcasing their creativity and the physicality of freerunning.

We’re sure there’ll be a brilliantly exciting “don’t try this at home” feeling to the whole afternoon.

    I’ve signed up, fingers crossed! This sounds like great fun, although I’m not sure how a set course fits in with the concept of free-running.

    Hopefully we’ll see some mavericks leaping on the roof of the National Gallery and joining the folks on the fourth plinth…
