Continuing the tradition of free running competition since 2007, Red Bull Art of Motion made the journey for the seventh year to Santorini in 2017. The competitors amazed with their skillful and creative blend of free running, parkour, martial arts and gymnastics, set against the unbelievable scenery of Santorini’s cliffs. The rooftops, terraces, swimming pools and domes, called a “parkour paradise”, made up the competition obstacle course, in a completely natural free running environment with no extra construction required. The 2017 track race was held in Oia.
In 2013 our sister hotel Blue Dolphins assisted Red Bull in the organization and all the athletes stayed at Grand View Hotel. We also assisted in the following year of 2014.
Our Greek hero Dimitris Kyrsanidis (DK) won the competition in 2014 and 2015. You can visit Dimitri on his Facebook profile.
