The final round of the Vern Curnow Shield was held on Tuesday 22nd of January 2019 at Joe Carmody Track in Newborough.

There were athletes from three clubs in attendance and it seems that a good time was had  by all.

The results are in and congratulations go to South Coast Athletics (579 points) for taking out this years Vern Curnow Shield.

Gippsland Athletics (297 points) held on to second by a slim margin over Traralgon Harriers (205 points), with Wellington Athletics (133 points) finishing fourth.

South Coast Athletics had the highest number of competitors over the two weeks of the competition and took a well deserved win. The washed out first round may well have had a big influence on the results.

Gippsland Athletics would like to thank all of the participating clubs and their athletes for again helping to make the Vern Curnow Shield a special part of our season.
