Competitor in the Grand Haven Beach Vault
University of Michigan pole vaulter Robbie Rix of Kentwood.
GRAND RAPIDS (WZZM) -- A downtown street will resemble a track and field location Wednesday as pole vaulters take over for a new event.
The "GR Street Vault" is being organized by the same people who put together the annual Grand Haven Beach Vault.
The event begins at Wednesday afternoon on Ottawa Avenue on the west side of the Van Andel Arena. Girls and boys will compete in the afternoon, with "elite" vaulters from around the U.S. competing in the evening.
For more information on the schedule and how to register for the event, you can go to the Grand Haven Beach Vault Facebook page.
