Free City to Surf Training Program

Check out this great, safe running program developed by our expert physiotherapist for the Perth City to Surf. Star Physio’s James Lewin is physiotherapist to the Australian Triathlon Team and an elite athlete and former professional athlete in his own right.

This is a conservative program for the “novice” or “comeback” runner to help you get to the City to Surf start line in good shape! Get in touch with James or one of our other running expert physiotherapists or podiatrists if you would like a program more specific to your needs, or if you are concerned a niggle or injury might stop you from getting started or continuing!

Check out some other great tips on finding the best running shoes and how you can avoid running injuries with this great presentation by James here!
