Join Team UWA for one of WA’s most loved community sporting events, the Chevron Perth City to Surf for Activ.

Join Team UWA at the 2018 Perth City to Surf

Run annually on the last Sunday in August, the event attracts participants from around Australia and overseas.

The event has a unique festival atmosphere at both the start in Perth City and even more so at the finish at City Beach overlooking the sparkling Indian Ocean, and includes a Marathon, Half Marathon, 12km Run, 12km Walk, 4km Run and Walk and a 4km Wheelchair– so there’s something for any level of fitness.

The Marathon and Half Marathon courses are some of the most picturesque in the world - winding along the beautiful Swan River and through WA’s number one tourist attraction, the magnificent Kings Park Botanic Gardens.

Join Team UWA training sessions

A lack of motivation to train can be the biggest obstacle to your success. You are more likely to succeed in finishing or achieving a target time if you have a run training program and are fairly disciplined in following it.

The dilemma that all of us face at some time is “doing the training” even if we have a run program to follow. Motivation aside, it is much easier to train with another person or with a group to support you on your running journey.

Join us for a series of training sessions each Tuesday 5.30-6.30pm from 17 July until race day to get prepared for the City to Surf. These sessions are free for gym members, and $50 for non-members. Non-members please pay at the UWA Fitness Centre reception.

With a qualified instructor, these running sessions are perfect for those wanting to improve their running capabilities and obtain some invaluable running techniques.
