Distance runners are fighters who face battles with every step. Every step provides aninternal and external struggle. You battle the voice in your head trying to convince you to stop running. You fight a fatigued and exhausted body. You fight against the terrain. You fight other runners who are trying to break you down and beat you. These opponents will not relent until you give up. When it comes down to it, distance running is a test of willpower.

Over 1700 photos of the Dauphin Street Vault. Part of our Dauphin Street Vault coverage
Vaulters are a rare breed. I have never known one to not make the best of a bad situation. A two hour rain delay didnt keep the athletes or the crowds away as some of the best vaulters in the nation competed at the 4th Annual Dauphin Street Vault.
The low bar at the Dauphin Street Vault opened Saturday morning at 5ft with some of the youngest vaulters in the country pounding the runway.
For those of you that are not familiar with a "Street vault" imagine a group of people shutting down a street or sidewalk, throwing up a makeshift runway leading to a set of mats and standards. Now the same people run and vault. There you have it......a street vault. The best one in the southeast? The Dauphin Street Vault. If you are free on Saturday, this is the place to be!

People generally don’t understand what it takes to train distance runners. Competitive distance running is more involved than recreational jogging. Because just about anyone can jog, people assume anyone can be a distance runner. It is comical when people assume all we do as coaches is tell our athletes to go for a run. I smile and allow what people say about assuming to be true- for them.
Effective with the 2015 high school track and field season, the prohibition of jewelry will be eliminated.
