The former chairman of the athletics club Mark Mohring has been elected as President of the Society as the past president Richard McEvoy has completed his term of office. Mark is Johannesburg born and bred and along with his brothers matriculated from King Edward VII school. he played rugby at the school but unlike his brothers he did not play for the 1st Xv. He then went to Wits University to study Mining Engineering and received his BSc in 1991. Whilst studying he also played rugby for the University. Today he is a self employed Mining Consultant.

He has worked on mines in the Middleburg, Vereeniging and Witbank areas and it was while he was at these mines that started running. He joined Old Eds in 2012 and has taken part in all the main road races in and around Johannesburg as well as the Two Oceans and Comrades. He also plays water polo for the Society.

He was elected chairman of the athletics club in 2015 and was the driving force behind the club hosting the first Discovery Vitality Four race series last year. That saw the numbers who ran the 21km and 10km annual Old Eds race day increase by over 50% to almost 6000 runners.

"The proposed redevelopment of the Society's grounds and facilities is going to be a huge challenge" he said. "We need to make The Society self-sustainable and in so doing try to attract new members to the club."

Mark is married to Lucinda who also runs for the Society and they have two boys one of whom is in matric at King Edward school.
