Louisville's Fourth Street Live! to host pole vaulting event
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A unique competition is luring elite athletes to Louisville with some lofty goals.
Pole vaulters from around the world -- including Olympians -- will compete in the 7th annual Vault in the Ville. It's a pole-vaulting competition with a street party vibe. Heuser Health puts it on, and this year anyone will be able to compete in a new event.
The Louisville Warrior obstacle course is open to all ages to test your skills with events like a tire run and fire hose pull. The event benefits the Louisville Youth Training Center, a place helping kids in need learn that getting fit can be fun.
"We don't see any monetary compensation, it all goes to the charity to sponsor kids who can't afford to go to gyms or participate in events like soccer and things like that," said Chip Heuser.
Vault in the Ville runs Friday, July 27, through Sunday, July 29, at Fourth Street Live.
