Nedbank Running

Nedbank Running

Nedbank remains a committed supporter and sponsor of local running. Running provides an opportunity to touch the lives of all South Africans without experiencing cultural, racial or financial barriers. Running is truly a sport for all. Nedbank's’ involvement in running is aimed at addressing three requirements:

  • To establish running clubs that focus on attracting Nedbank employees, Nedbank clients and the general public to running, thereby growing the base of active athletes in the country.
  • To attract the best South African runners with a view to raising the quality of local athletes so that South African runners can compete confidently on the world stage.
  • To create a family-based experience that is not threatening or intimidating to social runners or walkers who are interested in staying fit, socialising or simply enjoying a healthy lifestyle and improve their sporting ability.

Nedbank Running Club

In early 2008 Nedbank launched the Nedbank Running Club (NRC), with 13 branches based in12 cities around the country to bring running enthusiasts together at a social and competitive level while identifying and guiding talented individuals to excel at the sport. The NRC now has a membership of over 3 300 people. The branches are strategically located in the Boland, Gauteng (North and Central), Eastern Cape, Free State, KwaZulu-Natal, Mpumalanga, South Western Districts, Western Cape, Vaal Triangle and Central North West.

Nick Bester, a past winner of the Comrades Marathon and an incredible multidiscipline athlete, serves as the club's national manager. Bruce Fordyce, one of South Africa's leading proponents of distance running and winner of nine Comrades Marathons and three London to Brighton races, is the Public Relations Manager of the NRC and CEO of NRC Central Gauteng.

Nedbank Green Dream Team

The Dream Team consists of a mixture of top South African athletes who compete in all the recognised distances as well as many of South Africa's Ultra marathons. This elite squad has been individually selected after consultation with experienced managers and coaches. Many are world class runners in their own right and athletes such as Bongmusa Mthembu, Ludwick Mamabolo, Claude Moshiywa, Charne Bosman, Irvette Van Zyl, Rutendo Nyahora and Sibusiso Nzima form part of the team.

The Green Dream Team is supplemented by a talented squad of promising young athletes who are nurtured by the NRC.
