Katie McDonnell

Katie is one of the world's leading female freerunners.

Katie is 26 years old and is from London. She started practising parkour/freerunning in 2010. Prior to that she was a competitive cheerleader at her university. She was inspired to take up parkour after seeing a group of freerunners practising at an open gym session. She soon joined in not only finding a new sport but a whole new community and hasn’t looked back. She says, ‘I think that that was the first time I really experienced the true sense of freedom that comes with freerunning and from then on, training outside became my new favourite thing!’. Katie is now a full-time professional and represents her sport globally through commercial shoots and attending parkour events.
