Pole Vaulting at Eastern Market

It’s really not what you expect to see: Pole vaulters in front of Eastern Market. But, here on Capitol Hill, all things are possible. When we heard that this was going on, we sent out our photographer. (RSP)
The event was put on by DC Vault. They had all ages jumping, here an 8 year old clears a six-foot bar. (RSP)
Shoes were important. Not just to run in, but to mark their takeoff run. (RSP)
Also important? Chalk, to improve your grip on this hot day. (RSP)
But mainly it was fun just watching the vauters perform. (RSP)
Here’s the view down C Street. (RSP)
The jumpers know when it went well (RSP)
