Street culture came to the unexpected setting of a stately home as free runners took over the grounds of Harewood House.
They were part of a demonstration featuring some of the world’s best parkour athletes.
Visitors were treated to high-octane performances which included gymnastics, stunts and martial arts.
They showed off their skills in the discipline which involves focusing on moving efficiently around obstacles by rolling and climbing over them or leaping off them.
It also featured in the spectacular opening ceremony of the Olympics.
Show producer Susannah Daley said the exhilarating show put on at Harewood appealed to audiences of all ages.
She said: “Free running is one of the most exciting extreme sports around at the moment.”
Telling the story of a homeless teenager and self-taught free runner as he enters the world of film as a stunt extra, performances were set to a fusion of classical and contemporary music.
As well as vaults, rolls, climbs and leaps, the Freerunning@ show also showcased break dancing and Brazilian martial art capoeira.
Visitors could even try it out themselves at free workshops over the weekend.
The event was part of Games in the Park, which are taking place across the region to explore artistic interpretations of sport and are part of the London 2012 Cultural Olympiad.
Dance students from the Northern School of Contemporary Dance also performed while there were interactive activities and workshops on storytelling and visual arts while would-be writers worked with a poet to create their own poem about Games in the Park.
