At school you have the sporty kids who play football, netball, basketball, tennis, and you have the non sporty ones who enjoy watching from the sidelines, dodging the ball. But by lunchtime, this all changed. Every kid on the playing field ran riot in the good ol’ game of tag. There’s now the chance to relive your childhood days by competing in a game of World Chase Tag and us lucky Londoners will be amongst the first non-pros globally to have a shot at testing the course for free.
If only we knew you could plat tag competitively, right? Well, World Chase Tag is slightly more complex than now as the game blends parkour with the playground favourite, tag. The London event is powered by PRO 2GO, a new range of high protein vegan snacks. While the course usually tackled by expert parkour athletes, people of all abilities and levels are encouraged to jump, duck and dodge in hope of evading their speedy opponents.
