Join the Virtual Fun Run with JomRun!

Virtual runs are trending the word over because they are easy, flexible and definitely fun! And when you combine JomRun, Nickelodeon and Animation International, the fun is tripled and so is the health!

Southeast Asia’s leading sports app, JomRun, known for conducting reward based runs, has partnered with Nickelodeon and Animation International to bring thematic virtual fun runs to Singapore. Participants can choose from Crayon Shinchan Virtual Run Series, Spongebob Squarepants Virtual Run and Garfield Virtual Run, based on their favourite, iconic characters. Finishers also stand a chance to receive an attractive array of limited edition Garfield, Spongebob Squarepants and Shinchan merchandise upon completing the runs.

Participants can choose between a range of distances – a half marathon (21km) or a 5km run. Runners can choose to run in short time spans to make up the distance as well. They also have the flexibility to complete the mission by incorporating a step counter, a GPS tracking wearable, a  treadmill run or other cardio exercises such as jogging.
