Blade Running involves a jumper flying an open parachute through a slalom course between and around wind blades. For years this relatively unknown discipline was practiced mainly down the slopes of snow covered mountains.

Recently however with the development of high performance canopies swooping has seen somewhat of a spike in popularity as these canopies now allow pilots to "run the blades" on courses layed designed on level ground surfaces, ponds and lakes.

Swooping requires exeptional canopy control skills and is only for experienced canopy fliers.
