DES MOINES, Iowa – The Drake Relays are making subtle changes to its annual pole vault competition.
Drake Relays Director Blake Boldon said some changes include ways the DJ introduces athletes and increased walkways for expected crowds.
“To see some of the world’s best athletes competing in such a unique venue. The architecture here is just beautiful, and really sets as an iconic backdrop for a world-class competition,” Boldon said.
The Drake Relays pole vault competition has been inside downtown’s Capital Square since 2016.
