Brit’s Pub Vault

Sports - Spectator

Pole vaulting from the top of a building may sound like the stuff of superheroes, but mere mortals will be soaring through the sky at Brit’s this weekend. The grass is usually reserved for lawn bowling and movie screenings, but this Saturday it will host this unique event. For the past couple years, the Twin Cities Track Club has organized this intense competition on the roof of the downtown bar. Top athletes, some fresh from the Rio Olympics, including Leslie Brost, will be vaulting in heats starting in the early morning through the evening. Guests will find some seating on the lawn, or spectators can watch from various tables on the veranda. While folks fly and flex their muscles, food and drink will be served to patrons.
