Competition in the Drake Relays began Tuesday night with the Grand Blue Mile in downtown Des Moines, but one of its most popular events is Wednesday night.

Jordan Creek Town Center in West Des Moines plays host to the indoor pole vault, which has become a unique experience for competitors and spectators alike.

The event begins at 6:15 p.m. and is free but if you want to get a good spot to watch, you’ll want to arrive early.

The heptathlon and decathlon also start Wednesday at Drake Stadium’s blue oval.
