Move The Nation, an organisation that seeks to foster a culture of running and healthy living in South Africa, is back in 2023 with a new event, The Impact Run! Designed to get you up and moving, the ethos behind the race is to bring health to the forefront and make it a priority for all, which is something that we at Modern Athlete can get fully behind!
To understand more about the race we chat with well-known runner, and co-founder of Move the Nation, Peteni Kuzwayo.
He explains that the messaging behind the organisation is to encourage people to move forward, in health and in life. Both he and his business partner, Kabelo Mabalane believe, exercises like running are crucial to this.
The more we move and get better conditioned, the more we become crucial assets to ourselves (wellness) and acquire greater individual agency to contribute. Impact Run is a dedicated calendar day paying tribute to those that have chosen movement, future fit choices, and contribution to society using the unique (rare and novel) opportunity of running through the streets of Sandton – the Richest Square Mile in Africa – to create collective Impact!
So if you too believe that running or walking is the next step for you, you are invited to join!
Happening on the 5th of August at Wanderers Stadium, this race’s ethos is about creating an Impact through our favourite form of movement, running! This race is all about wellness, both in how we move, and our mental health when we don’t. Whether you are a walker, a runner, or just someone who loves following those who do, this event is all about embracing the wellness journey!
Offering 21km, 10km and 5km options there is a distance for everyone… whether you are just starting out, or looking for your next challenge to step up to, or gunning for a new best, this race has something for everyone. And there will be plenty to look forward to after your run or walk, too, as DJ Zinhle hits the decks . This is one party you don’t want to miss!
