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!

The Running Company – Ballarat caters for the runner by offering hard to find brands such as Ciele Athletics caps and beanies as well as Nike Vision eyewear, we’re here for all of your footwear, apparel and accessories to help keep you moving and achieving your goals.

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. Julian is an elite marathon runner who represented Australia at the World Athletics Championships in Doha in 2019. Julian owns The Running Company Ballarat with his partner Bri, has his own online coaching business- Run Strong Online Coaching, is a race director, and a co-host of the Inside Running Podcast.
Julian began running in 2009 using the reverse progression method of beginning with a marathon (Portland 3 Bays Marathon in 3:04). The next few years were then riddled with injury until managing to string some consistency around 2017 when he ran the Berlin Marathon in 2:18. Since then his marathon PR has progressed to 2:14 (Lake Biwa, 2019).
