The Best Running Routes in Perth’s North | Surge Fitness

Whether you are training for a marathon or perhaps just love running in general, Perth’s north is home to many great running trails that are all ready for you to conquer. Are you up for the challenge? If so, then read away below!


Lake Monger Reserve

With glistening lake views out to Perth city, Lake Monger features one of the most scenic running routes by far – especially during sunrise and sunset. The 3.5km loop circles the lake with plenty of shade and stunning nature to admire. For animal lovers, there’s plenty of bird and wildlife spotting to do along the way.


Reabold Hill

Located in Bold Park, Reabold Hill is a real treasure in Perth’s outer city suburbs. Filled with a good dose of flora, the Zamia trail stretches 5km and takes you up to 85 metres above sea level. Once you make it to the top, the Reabold Hill Summit Lookout provides scenic views of the Indian Ocean, Perth and even the Swan River.


Carine Regional Open Space

With loads of luscious greenery and plenty of ground to cover, Carine Regional Open Space is an ideal place to train if you are after relatively painless terrain. Its relaxing nature paths and open field allow for a diverse running route no matter your fitness levels. Let’s not forget, this area is dog-friendly as well!


Marine Parade

Trailing 7km along the beautiful ocean, Marine Parade offers a picturesque running route from Swanbourne Beach spanning all the way to Port Beach. If you’re someone who might like a post-run dip at the beach, this may be the most appealing option. So put on your running shoes, as the coast is calling!


Lake Joondalup Circuit

Within the Yellagonga Regional Park lies the famous Lake Joondalup, with a 16km circuit to keep you on your toes! The best part? You’re sure to come across the many natural wonders of this expansive freshwater lake including turtles, dugites, tiger snakes, ducks, other birdlife and even kangaroos. Make your start at Neil Hawkins Park – and if you can stay determined enough, completing the entire route is one victorious feeling.


Herdsman Lake

Similar to Lake Monger, Herdsman Lake is a thriving wetland that promises spectacular views over open waters, alongside native flora and fauna. While the Herdsman Lake loop is a straightforward running route to tackle, you can’t go past the Olive Seymour Boardwalk. Pop in during your run to walk amongst the paperbark trees.


Scarborough-Trigg Heritage Trail

The Scarborough-Trigg Heritage trail is another great option for bushland runners. With approximately 7.2km to scale, there are three different trails tracing the coastline – so you can savour the sea breeze as you smash out all your running goals.


Switch It Up Indoors

For those who fancy a change of scenery, there’s certainly no shame in training indoors at one of the many gyms in Perth’s north. With Surge Fitness health clubs situated in Clarkson and Wanneroo, as well as Kings Square Perth CBD and Two Forty Perth CBD, it’s never been easier to keep training.


Important Information Regarding Your Surge Fitness Membership.

Yesterday’s announcement from our Prime Minister ordering the immediate closure of Fitness Facilities across the nation is significant a blow to all of us across many Industries. We understand that this decision has been based on the best advice currently available to those responsible for our safety and with the Impending state border closures, and increasing community concerns, meant that this decision was unavoidable.

As such, it is with great sadness that we today announce that all Surge Fitness clubs will temporarily close, effective from 12pm today, Monday 23rd March 2020.

At Surge Fitness, we believe that we can make a difference, change lives and build healthy communities. As a brand, we still have a lot of work to do and we all believe that we can continue to positively impact our members and the local communities at large during this time of uncertainty.

Like many of you, our business is facing unprecedented impacts both on our people and our business and we will continue to work through the issues together as effectively as possible.

During this time of closure, all memberships will be placed on complimentary freeze until we are in a position to resume our regular services. Surge Fitness has been working on contingency plans throughout the past few weeks to provide ongoing services to our members such as online & virtual training platforms including numerous resources to help support our members physical and mental health well-being.

Further announcements will be made in the coming days with communications to be published both on our social media platforms and via email once the government has clarified their position regarding the forced closure directive.

On behalf of all of the team at Surge Fitness we would like to thank you all for your ongoing support over the years. As a team we have shared some memorable experiences with you all. Today's forced closure is just a minor setback in our Health & Fitness journey together.
