JomRun is a mobile application that rewards people for running. The mobile application was launched in December 2017.
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.
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. Points are given to users whenever they go out on a walk or run which in turn can be used to redeem discounts. Users can also join challenges to win entries to join sports events in Malaysia.
History[edit | edit source]
Yi Hern Chang started JomRun as a side project when he was in his second year of Engineering Degree at Oxford University. He brought together a small team of seven and subsequently opened an office at Cyberjaya, Malaysia.
