Brad Wauer – Pro Triathlete, Former TRC Adelaide assistant manager and all round good guy has taken the leap of faith and turned his dream to have a running shop on the Sunshine Coast into a reality.

Brad has always called the Sunny Coast his second home, spending huge amounts of time up in the triathlon community racing and training and when the opportunity presented itself to take the next step, he dived in, head first and has been warmly welcomed by the running/tri/sports medical community.

With all the standard The Running Company experience, full digital gait analysis, referral gait analysis footage sent to the referrer, the highest levels of product knowledge tied in with athlete experience, Brad has naturally settled into the Sunshine Coast running scene and made an extremely big impact in a very short space of time.

The store looks nothing short of amazing and has elevated all The Running Company retail space design plans with the two treadmills split next to one another and full timber decking.

You can follow Brad’s escapades on Instagram or FB and for anyone with any Q’s whatsoever, you can get in touch with Brad at :

The Running Company – Geelong has been the gold standard for running specialty retail in Victoria (both metro and regional.) and has just kicked into another gear!

Founder of the Geelong store, Scott Nicholas has moved onto his new found passion of cycling opening Bike Matters, a first class Bike store in Torquay with all the learnings from his Running Company experience.

As such, Lisa and Jacques Verstraten who are no strangers to the running community have taken up the helm at The Running Company – Geelong.

With Jacques having worked in the Geelong store for some time now and Lisa a dedicated running coach, it was a match made in heaven for the Verstraten family to join The Running Company family.

With real world insights and knowledge around all aspects of running but a real passion for athletics, hit up the Geelong store for a chat and catch up with all the crew.

For any Q’s you can catch the crew at:

Renee and Brad Fuller are no strangers to the Victorian running community!

Renee has been the manager of The Running Company – Geelong for the past couple of years and they too had a passion to own their own store.

Having done the hard yards, learning her trade from the best in at Geelong, Renee and Brad found a perfect location in Yarraville which is a stones throw from the train station and in the main street of Yarraville which has been missing a first class running shop.

Whilst we were setting the store up, we’d had numerous people stop in and ask “Is this the same Running Company as the Geelong and Clifton Hill stores?”

As soon as we said yes, they all replied “we’ll be in soon, so happy to have you guys so close now!”

This speaks volumes for the amazing work that both the Geelong and Clifton Hill stores have done and also for the need to have Renee and Brad open in a spot yearning for some Running Company love!


The Running Company – Love Bus – coming to an event near you!

We’re mobile!

At The Running Company – if we’re going to do something, it’s always premium.

The Love Bus is a long wheel base, high roof Mercedes van which holds a significant number of shoes, mobile treadmill for on the spot gait analysis and marquee / chairs for weary legs after a long (or short) run!

With the Love Bus being housed in Victoria for the time being and helping service the 4 stores in and around Regional and Metro Victoria, we’ve had amazing success at a number of events now, bringing products and services to people whom might not ordinarily find the time to make it into any one of our stores.

With the ability to try on product and test it out on the spot from trail to road and tri, all coming to you, The Running Company Love Bus certainly builds a presence and helps add value to any event.

For any Q’s or if you’d like to see her at your event, drop us a line at :


and we’ll see what we can organise.

Happy Running and as always, thank you to the amazing running communities around Australia for all of their support, it’s truly humbling.
