Get Your Sweat On With This One-Of-A-Kind Augmented Reality Run (And Win Some Prizes Along The Way)
Now that we've been stuck at home for so long, it is understandable if you're finding it hard to keep yourself motivated to exercise.

If you want something new and something exciting to get your butt moving, well, we have just the thing for you!

Stay fit during the pandemic

District Race Malaysia by AIA Vitality
is back and ready to empower Malaysians in an all new, free to participate, augmented reality digital event.

The latest edition of District Race Malaysia was launched on Monday (1 March), and this year, it was created with excercising during the COVID-19 pandemic in mind.

The four-month event aims to motivate people to stay active and stay healthy, by exercising in a new and exciting way while being comfortable and safe.

Powered by its cutting-edge technology platform, it promotes users to lead active and healthy lifestyles in the new normal by providing an engaging and fun urban exploration experience through the District app. 

​The new version of the District app offers everyone multiple ways to participate regardless of their fitness level – there are enhanced fitness experiences, augmented reality and various community competitions for all to experience.  

And that's not all: this year, the District Race has been extended across all of Malaysia, so anyone can participate and enjoy the fun. 

How does it work?

The easiest way to get started is to walk, jog or run to virtual checkpoint locations nearby. Simply open the District Race app, press Start, and walk through the GPS locations to earn points.

Explore in your neighbourhood or at a local park; there are checkpoints everywhere. You know, just like what we used to do with 'Pokemon GO'.

Those who do not want to collect checkpoints can also earn points for any kilometers walked or run. These activities can be tracked in the District app or by linking a GPS-supported wearable device, such as a Garmin.

After linking a wearable device, all activities will sync directly to the District app and points will be credited towards the overall leaderboard. It has never been so easy to participate in an event.

In addition to monthly competitions, there is a Grand Prize draw that will run for the length of the event from 1 March to 30 June, with amazing prizes up for grabs.

Any activity that garners 2,000+ points will receive one lucky draw entry and the grand prize lucky draw winner will drive away a brand-new Proton X50. There are over 40 contest prizes to be won, including Garmin watches, adidas gear, and much more. 

So, what are you waiting for? Download the app on the Apple app store or Google Play now, and get your butt moving! You can click this link to get started.
