Ft. Riley / KSU/ MANHATTAN and surrounding...
« on: July 19, 2009, 09:17:39 PM »
[move][/move]
Just trying to figure out if I can get this Kansas area motivated to break into the scene.  I myself am just getting into this sport, but Im highly motivated to get into it and make this something popular.  There is a good potential for a fan base and interest in the area between the Military base and the college.  Lots of athletic potential here and I know there are traces of .. PK's .. free runners and t's ..


any input or interest would be very appreciated.. i will keep looking till i find anything..  KC is just to far a drive for me to do constantly

I'm going to be moving to Ft. Riley in January, and would like to find some people to work with this coming spring/summer.

Hey, I'll be a KSU student for fall and I'm moving in at the beginning of next month (june) I was wondering if you guys got a group together to do training, I'd love to tag along and start getting to know people, and getting back into shape (mountain air is thin and wrecked my workout routine).

TheFloyd, I'm not in the area but I will be attending KSU the Fall semester of 2016 (hopefully). Please let me,  and anyone who passes through this thread, how training and meeting other traceurs in the area goes :)

KSU didn't work out for me financially at the moment. I had trouble finding a job and housing in the area. so now I'm back to Olathe for the time being. You said you'll be there 2016 though, maybe I'll have my life together again by then and I'll start industrial engineering at KSU. 2016... here we come.

I'm a current K-Stater and parkour novice. I know this is kind of an old thread, but it seemed worth a shot. Any locals still looking to meet up?

Hey, I am a current K State student and was wondering if thise of you that said you were interested in meeting up are still wanting to. I am a novice parkour but would be willing/able to dedicate a lot of time to make this group happen. Post here or message and we can start meeting up!

I am positive we can get this to grow from 2-4 people to a good sized group. So lets get this from the talking to the acting stage!
