About Us

Our City Running School is our first centre to be opened right in the heart of the city. It is a continuation of our relationship with Sweatshop in joining with them on this exciting new running destination. The facility will include a state of the art gym, physio practice, an altitude centre and one of the largest Sweatshop stores in the country. 

Our centre is managed by Nick Antoniades and Mike Antoniades Founder and Performance Director of The Running School.
