Created by runners for runners, JustRunLah! helps active individuals find mass participation events, buy tickets at exclusive rates, and track their performance. For event organisers, JustRunLah!’s integrated ticketing and marketing platform lets them target a very relevant, highly engaged audience of athletes across the Asia-Pacific region.

Connecting runners and events across borders.

JustRunLah! wanted to grow its business by connecting as many runners and event organisers as possible in different countries across the region. To achieve this, it needed a simple, trusted and global way for event partners to receive money and for runners to pay. The ideal solution would be easy to use regardless of the user’s preferred device, currency or card-type.

A partner for seamless connections.

JustRunLah! chose PayPal because it makes it easy for the business to serve its event partners and its running customers. PayPal Buyer and Seller Protection apply to eligible transactions so customers and partners feel safer doing business with JustRunLah!, helping to build stronger, closer connections.

Growing the business through stronger connections.

PayPal’s secure, single solution makes it easier to deal with business partners and end-consumers anywhere in the world. As a result, JustRunLah! has attracted new users and events across the Asia-Pacific region, enabling it to become the region’s largest running and fitness destination. Today, the site has over 200,000 users.
 

“PayPal's global usage, multiple payment options (with both buyer and seller protection) and security are some of the critical features which enable a regional business like ours to operate with ease and confidence. As a result, we could reach out to business partners and end-consumers outside Singapore without compromising the security of payment transactions. As a digital business, this allowed us to scale our business and bring our service offering to more people with minimal geographical limitations.”

Brian Liu Zhiyong, Director, JustRunLah!
