How to configure pipeline runner to execute from specific country?

How can I configure gitlab pipeline runner to execute from a specific country?

Requirement : I have some URLs for web scraping those are only accessible from India (CDN level restrictions). So inorder to connect to those from my pipeline I need to run the code from India.

How can I setup that?

Also what is the default location/ region for gitlab pipeline runner?

As far as I know all GitLab Shared Runners are hosted in US and there is no “country” selection.
If you need a Runner to be running in India you have to deploy and maintain your own Runner on a server in that region.
