JomRun is a mobile application that rewards people for running. The mobile application was launched in December 2017.[1]

Making Malaysians Healthier[edit | edit source]

JomRun was created with the aim of tackling obesity in Malaysia, as Malaysia has been recorded as the country with the highest obesity rate in South East Asia, with 13.3% of the population being obese, and 38.5% overweight.[2]

JomRun is not a tracking device, though it can be linked to a range of existing tracking apps and devices such as Strava, Polar and Apple Health[2]. Points are given to users whenever they go out on a walk or run which in turn can be used to redeem discounts.[1] Users can also join challenges to win entries to join sports events in Malaysia.[3]

History[edit | edit source]

Introducing JomRun app to the public

Yi Hern Chang started JomRun as a side project when he was in his second year of Engineering Degree at Oxford University[1][3]. He brought together a small team of seven and subsequently opened an office at Cyberjaya, Malaysia.[1]

As of May 2018, JomRun has 6000 users[2] and around 30 partner companies.[1][2]

Sunway iLabs and NEXEA Angels are the two early stage investors of JomRun.[2][4][5]
