JomRun hopes to be top sports mobile app in M’sia

23rd July, 2019

By JONATHAN NICHOLAS

KOTA KINABALU: You may opt to skip manual registration and payments for your next running event with the JomRun application.

The homegrown mobile app aspires to make Malaysians healthier by turning running into a rewarding activity via digitalisation.

Its Sabah chief executor Lim Way Yang said the app’s goal is to cut out the need for cross checks before events which in turn saves time with the inherited information right down to the runners t-shirt size.

“The app has a rating average about 4.5 on the App and Playstore with over 150,000 monthly active users within six months of its inception making it the country’s number one sports app.

“Simply put, it is a ticketing platform to connect runners in Sabah after finding that is what so many running events here lack,” he said.

JomRun has handled more than fifty running events in Sabah, reaching as far as Kudat, Sandakan and Tawau and the company takes up to 47pc of the marketing share from these events.

Users may earn up to 10 points per jogged kilometer which can be redeemed at partner outlets; Coffee Bean, Kenny Rogers, and Pando Cafe to name a few.

The concept is heavily inspired and further enables a fairly new trend of running called virtual running, where users exchange miles traveled by foot into points for prizes.

“We have now 3644 Sabahan participants signed up for the ‘I Love Kota Kinabalu’ running event on the Sept 7 at Perdana Park.

“This shows that JomRun is growing here. We plan to make running events cheap and affordable for everyone and to convert first timers to frequent runners.

“I understand that a few rural areas have bad internet connectivity, which is seen as a norm for Sabah, but it is time to shift to the digital age and that time is now,” he added at a press conference here at Sutera Harbour on Monday.
