Meet The Team

Fletch – Business Owner & Shoe Expert


In 2014 Irish expat Jonathan Fletcher, known to all as “Fletch”, ditched the corporate world to follow his dream of working in the running industry. When Running Science went up for sale he knew it was a sign – it was where he bought his first pair of running shoes in Australia. With the support of his wife and business partner, Lorna, they decided to go all in. The two of them haven’t looked back. The business has gone from strength to strength and is expanding its services and product rang constantly.

Fletch is also a bona fide “Endurance Sports” enthusiast and has successfully conquered all sorts of races including Ironman, numerous triathlons and 100 kilometre events. He is eager to help all runners – from beginner to endurance to elite – achieve their goals.
