The trend has landed on the wrong side of the law as it has drawn police crackdowns for attracting on-spot betting.
Night running has become all the rage in Indonesia. It is being traced back to the boredom brought on by the coronavirus pandemic, it having pushed young people to find alternatives to casual night outs.

From early August of this year, an increasing number of young Indonesians are hitting the streets barefoot to compete in nightlong running competitions.

The winner either takes home the memories of loud cheers and clapping, or a financial prize, ranging from $40-60 (Rp 700.000- Rp 900.000).
