SPRINT A DEAD HEAT

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Look Local -

THE heat was on at City Beach on Sun­day in the fi­nal of the Sun­shine Beach Run Celebrity Beach Sprint. Af­ter an ex­haust­ing seven rounds with just min­utes be­tween each run, ath­lete Bren­ton Mizen and North Beach Football Club’s Nick Reid lined up for the fi­nal sprint.

The race was neck and neck and af­ter much de­lib­er­a­tion, it was de­clared a dead heat and both men were pre­sented the Chris Perkins Me­mo­rial Tro­phy. City of Perth surf life­saver Gabby Mur­phy put in a gutsy ef­fort as the only fe­male com­peti­tor, com­ing fourth be­hind Scar­bor­ough Football Club’s Josh Houlden.

West Coast Ea­gles play­ers also took part in the char­ity event.
