Vault Britain series launches

Entry to the Vault Britain series is to open this week, with indoor pole vault competitions taking place in London, Cardiff and Manchester in 2014.

The series, which expands on the Vault Manchester event set to return for the ninth year in 2014, offers prize money to athletes competing in at least two of the three meetings – Vault London on January 12, Vault Cardiff on February 1 and Vault Manchester on March 8.

Fresh from winning gold at the European Indoor Championships in Gothenburg, Holly Bleasdale claimed first place in the elite women’s competition at Vault Manchester earlier this year, clearing 4.61m to break the stadium record at Manchester’s Sportcity.

The event, which welcomed vaulters from across the country as well as the continent aged between nine and sixty, saw attempts on the British and Norwegian national indoor records and three UK under-20 men jumping over 5.00m for the first time in the same competition as well as over 51 personal bests.

Entry to Vault London opens on November 16, with entry to Vault Cardiff opening three days later. Vault Manchester is open for entry from December 1.
