In October 2013, The Running Company – Adelaide was launched. Founder Chris Chapman was born and raised in Adelaide and after opening the first store in Sydney, he felt the tug to come home to Adelaide, be closer to his family whom were all still in Adelaide.

There was a massive opportunity to bring everything that The Running Company is to Adelaide, no other store was or still is doing what The Running Company do in his hometown.

It was a success from day 1.

All the staff at The Running Company – Adelaide have amazing backgrounds in running, triathlon, trail but moreso their level of knowledge around running injuries, physio and sportsmed are second to none, all with no ego as it’s not about us, it’s about each and every person whom walks in the front door. Whether you walk or run 100 miles, we can help you make the right footwear, apparel, nutrition and trail gear choices to help you achieve your goals.

Appointments First.

We have moved to an appointment first system. We can only have 2 customers in the store at one time and we are highly respectful of everyones space and wellbeing. As such we ask that all our clients try to make a booking before coming into store.

You can book on our Facebook Page here and we still do accept walk ins but will prioritise our clients whom book in first and there may be some wait.

Thank you all for your support and understanding, it’s very much appreciated.

Running Club

The Running Company Running Club Adelaide

The Running Company – Adelaide Running Club is completely free. It is also a great opportunity to keep fit and meet new people.

The Route
We try to vary it every week but it’s usually around 8-10km at varying paces so inclusive for people of all abilities as opposed to exclusive and only for fast runners. We upload the route to Facebook on Monday or Tuesday of every week.

Meet the Team

Chris Chapman, Founder The Running Company
Chris (Chicken as he is more affectionately referred to – it’s all in the legs!) is the founder of The Running Company. Hailing from South Australia, Chris has over 20 years experience in the sporting goods industry, close to nine of those years with Nike. Across various roles, from retail in London, to footwear marketing in Melbourne, then onto EKIN and National Sales both based in Sydney. A combination of a love for great product, being a runner and just a care for wanting to help people make the best footwear decisions to stay injury free is what drives him.

1. Favourite run
Yurrebilla Trail run.
2. Best Running Moment
a) Helping my good friend Lucy smash her goal of sub-4 hour marathon in Melbourne.
b) Winning my hometown marathon in 2006.
3. What do you love about running?
It doesn’t matter how much money you have, what your surname is, what you look like or how popular you may be, running is the ultimate leveller. At the 38kM mark of a marathon, all that bullsh*t goes out the window and it’s at that point that a person’s true humility and personality come shining through – that’s what I love about running. It’s true, raw honesty.

Re-stocked and more important than ever. Caps keep your head warm and the rain off your face. Ciele caps are super comfortable, lightweight, soft and look sick!

They won’t last long, so grab them while you can!

If you checked and we sold out of your size this morning we have a little restock back online.

These are as rare as hens teeth and will put a smile on your dial, especially when it’s pouring rain and howling wind!

Giddy up!

Thanks to all our amazing family, friends and supporters of our small business around Australia and OS.
It’s been a crazy time but South Aussies have handled this amazingly well 👊.
It’s made me so proud to see how many of us are getting out, getting fit and respecting each other and supporting each others small businesses, even if it’s for a coffee you ordinarily wouldn’t get, if we all look out for one another like we have been, we’ll continue to thrive!

Giddy up!

TRC Adelaide wishes everyone a safe Easter! Please take note of our hours for the weekend.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we strongly encourage that you book a time to come and see us as we can only serve 2 customers at a time. You can do so via our Facebook page or by calling the store on 8123 0774.

Hi to all our amazing friends and family of The Running Company.
Due to the roller coaster ride we all currently find ourselves on, we want to continue to help each and every single person the very best we can and respect their health (as always!). Please when you come to either the Adelaide or South Adelaide store note our operating hours are still the same but we’ve further enacted social distancing rules to again ensure everyone’s physical and mental health in this unique point in time.
Please - Only 2 customers and a maximum of 3 staff in the store at any one time - any friends or family members must remain outside (and get some fresh air, the smell of Glen 20 is ever present!) - Card only, No Cash - 2 store benches are set up so each client has maximum distance and comfort from other clients - all cleaning and hygiene protocols are enacted pre and post each client , it’s nothing personal! Finally our amazing staff are all fit, healthy and happy and we are so fortunate to have had so much amazing support, we will always continue to pay this back ten fold in helping keep each and every friend of The Running Company, moving, enjoying what they love and staying physically and mentally strong. By respecting each other and using this opportunity to get back in touch with friend, family and ourselves, we’ll all come out the other end better people for it.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Chicken, Megan, George, Aidan (Chicken Family!) Max, Byron, Caitlin, Ethan, Angela, Matty and Issac.
