The Running Company

Ballarat, Victoria

The Running Company – Ballarat was founded in June 2016 by Julian Spence and Brianne Hook after the couple spent several years as manager and assistant manager of The Running Company – Geelong. The tight-knit running community and endless trails in the area attracted the two down the highway to share their passion for expert service and product knowledge which The Running Company stands for. The store is located in close proximity to the famous Steve Moneghetti track around Lake Wendouree and to Victoria Park’s 5km circuit which the weekly run club takes advantage of!

Meet the Team

Julian Spence
Julian brings his passion for running and footwear to Ballarat after spending several years as Manager of The Running Company – Geelong, where he learned the technical components of running footwear and developed a love for customer service. His running career really began in 2008 when he was inspired by a good mate running the Melbourne Marathon. Three weeks later he ran Portland 3-Bays Marathon and within a year he had completed the Melbourne Marathon in under 2:30. Julian has also ran several ultramarathons spanning as far as 100km, however, his love affair with the marathon distance has seen him attain numerous wins in the Great Ocean Road Marathon, as well as running his PB of 2:18:47 in the 2017 Berlin marathon.
