The Running Company

Adelaide, South Australia

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.

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.
