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 it was time for him to return home. He wanted to be closer to his family whom were all still in Adelaide but also saw a massive opportunity to bring everything that The Running Company is to Adelaide, no other store was or is doing what The Running Company do in his hometown.

Managed by Reece Taylor and with an outstanding team of knowledgeable runners/triathletes in Louise Harries, Brad Wauer, Riley Cocks and Sam Tebeck, The Running Company in Adelaide is the only place to get your running fix, road, trail or tri, we’ve got you covered.

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.

Recce Taylor The Running Company

Reece Taylor
Reece started running fun runs in primary school with his Dad, then moved into cross country and has continued to be surrounded by sport and exercise, in multiple forms since then, including soccer, tennis, cricket and cycling. Reece qualified as a personal trainer almost ten years ago and has a passion for body mechanics and helping people get active and stay fit. Although Reece took a hiatus from running, concentrating on his cycling and most recently mountain bike racing, he has been bitten by the bug again, brought on by the challenge to beat his father’s previous sub 3-hr marathon time. He is now clocking the kms on trails and the roads in order to conquer this challenge.

1. Favourite run
a) Parkrun – all of them
b) Running aimlessly in the many kms of trails around Adelaide
2. Best Running Moment
At the new Semaphore Coastal Marathon fundraiser event, the course was designed as an up and back 10km loop. Seeing all the runners countless times and shouting mutual encouragement made it a fun, entertaining day.
3. What do you love about running?
The running community, the support, encouragement and motivation I find at every event or training run.
