The first event started at 9am and carried through to the last event at 6pm. A lot of hard work by Harriers volunteers went into making the day a huge success. On a day that saw Tullamore Harriers athletes win an unprecedented six medals at the Championships with Eileen Rafter’s gold in the Under 16 girls mile provided a great finish to an almost perfect day for the club.
