America’s Largest Pole Vault Meets

For those of us whose ideal vacation includes pole vaulting, here’s the largest gatherings of vaulters in the United States – Canada.  East-West-North-South all regions are represented.

The list is ranked by number of flights.  A flight is a vaulting competition group that shares a runway for a session. So… if there were 2 runways, and they ran 4 sessions using both runways, there would be 8 flights.  Biggest Flight = largest number of vaulters that have to share one runway for one competition group.

Look for the Vaulter Magazine Approved Seal. This means we have been to the meet and loved what they do for the pole vault community. Fun, Exciting, and family oriented!
