Prize Purse Announced for First Annual Brit’s Pub Vault

Minneapolis, MN August 18, 2014

The Twin Cities Track Club will be offering a $5000 total cash prize purse for the First Annual Brit’s Pub Vault at Brit’s Pub in downtown Minneapolis on August 30. The prize money is available to vaulters competing in the professional competition at the end of the evening. 

“We have some of the best pole vaulters in the country coming to compete in Minneapolis,” said event director Jack Szmanda. “These are competitors and great athletes, and I have no doubt they will put on a show for the spectators at Brit’s. Hopefully this money will help these athletes as they continue to train and pursue their Olympic aspirations.”

Brit’s Pub will also donate $1.00 for every pint of Summit Beer served during the competition to support the athletes in their journey towards Rio in 2016. The money will be added to a general fund to be distributed evenly to the vaulters in the professional competition.
