With the current Movement Control Order (MCO) being extended, we are restricted from exercising outdoors. But with BitGym Virtual Running App, it’s definitely not a restriction to exercise.
KLCC Runners Group (KLCCRG), Malaysia’s largest running community, recently announced a partnership with BitGym from Los Angeles, a virtual running app that transports you to over 1,700 iconic destinations. No passport required.
BitGym takes KLCCRG members running around the world with a stunning catalogue of interactive trail and road tours. Take your morning jog along the cliff-side path from Bondi to Bronte beach in Sydney; or take a stroll whilst taking in the beautiful temperate rainforest and granite peaks of British Columbia.
You can even gather friends to run the high mountain peaks and deep volcanic valleys of New Zealand’s North Island and along the scenic canals of Venice!
“This is a unique partnership that brings together our shared goal of empowering individuals to help transform people’s lives,” said Matthew Barsing the founder of the KLCC Runners Group which has over 30,000 members on social media and is now recognised as one of the largest running communities in ASEAN.

“KLCC Runners Group has become hugely popular with runners, from beginners to elite athletes, in KL and beyond, with busy social media pages and an ever-growing presence as Malaysia’s Largest Running Community. Together with support of our founding sponsor, Malaysia Australia Business Council & our partner, Twin Towers Fitness Center, we will be developing innovative ways to get Malaysia fit, and best of all, make it a real fun experience,” says Matthew who is also the vice-chairman of the Malaysia Australia Business Council.

This has had a negative impact on both social conditions and the economy through loss of productivity and the KLCC Runners Group is doing its part to improve the situation, by keeping Malaysians active, which is more important now, due to restrictions from exercising outdoors.
