The final track and field event of the year, the Woodie’s DIY Masters championships, was held in glorious weather at Tullamore Harriers stadium and produced some tremendous competition. Competitors compete together in each event, and then the results are clarified into 5 year age categories starting at V1 (which is for athletes over 35 years of age). Sheila won the hammer and the shot putt, while Lucy showed that moving down in distance to the shorter track events proved no obstacle by winning the 1500m and 3000m double.

1 Sheila Champion Shot Putt, 4.72

1 Sheila Champion Hammer, 6.91

1 Lucy Darcy 3000m, 10:38.99

1 Lucy Darcy 1500m, 5:06.82

Good luck to all runners in tomorrow in the Frank Duffy 10 Mile race.
