North Beach club ready to fire in Dardanup Gift

View previous topic View next topic Go down  Message [Page 1 of 1]


One of the best up-to-date athletic club websites is the North Beach athletics club in Perth, where the head coach is Paul Edmiston.

Paul had a terrific career on the pro running scene (see bio below).

In looking up some details on the Dardanup Gift, his club's site popped up in google. Very impressive and worth having a look.

Good to see WA pro-running being so well supported by a local club and no doubt a few of Edmiston's squad will figure prominently in the Dardanup Gift this Saturday.

Paul Edmiston - Sprints, Hurdles, Jumps, Throws, Middle Distance & Relays.
