Old Mutual has a longstanding relationship with running but the pace of the running world has changed. Urban running crews with a passion for their society and the community collectiveness of running are growing at a rapid pace. Running has become a powerful social platform providing a team orientated environment for encouragement, coaching, learning and safety, as runners strive to become their exceptional best.


We’re combining our new sponsorships drive with an innovative approach to running through a new partnership with Move the Nation. The partnership with Move The Nation is about how smart running meets smart money decisions and this partnership brings with it financial- and physical fitness for everyone. We have an expert team of coaches who are supported by a team of pacers, called movers and shakers. While we provide a safe and fun training experience for everyone, our movers and shakers will ensure that no one is left behind while we run in the streets of Sandton. Their role is to pace all participants, regardless of their fitness level. Our financial coaches are also on-hand to coach you on your journey to financial fitness.


The inaugural Sandton run took place on 19 September 2019, sparking huge excitement. Look out for the upcoming events in the lead up to the Soweto Marathon on 3 November 2019 [AND BEYOND!]. Keen on joining? Download the Move The Nation APP ( to book your spot 48hrs before each live session.
