GEM TV Asia will be elevating the adrenaline levels this coming February with the premiere of the high-stakes reality series, Run for Money. The show transforms the ordinary into extraordinary as participants engage in a desperate race for both cash and freedom as they run continuously for 48 hours in a labyrinthine city while being pursued by relentless hunters. 


However, there is a twist. During the heart-stopping race, there will be a cash payout every 30 minutes tempting the contestants to halt and claim their prize. However, the time ticks as the hunters draw closer every minute, escalating the risk of elimination and adding an extra layer of suspense to the already intense competition. 

Run for Money puts physical endurance to the test and also dives into the psychological struggles of contestants. Fear, exhaustion and moral dilemmas become part of the journey as alliances are formed, trust is tested and desperation elevates with each passing second. 

The series has risen to fame as it becomes a social media sensation for its one-of-a-kind concept and unpredictable twists. Asian viewers can now experience the thrill firsthand as Run for Money premieres on February 9th at 7:50 pm on GEM TV Asia.
