What is a ‘virtual’ race or challenge?

A ‘virtual’ race or challenge enables you to participate in an event wherever you are in the world. Virtual walking, running or cycling works exactly the same as any other type of activity - you can do it in any location, at any pace, inside on stationery equipment or outside on the street, in a park, or even in another country!

How can I access the Virtual Club?

As the app is new as of September 2022, you will need to head to the App Store and download the app for either Apple or Android. Once you have downloaded the app, you can sign up and create a new account.

Who can join the Virtual Club?

Anyone can join the Virtual Club as long as they are employed by a company, and register under their company’s name. You do not need to have participated in a Bloomberg Square Mile Relay race, but please note that any new companies will need to be verified.

Wie funktioniert die Veranstaltung?

Dies ist eine vollständig immersive Teambuilding Veranstaltung, welche einen kooperativen Mannschaftsstaffelwettbewerb, Bewirtung und eine After-Party vereint. Für den Lauf müssen sich zehn (10) Personen zu einer Mannschaft zusammenschließen, jeder von ihnen läuft eine (1) Runde mit einer (1) Meile, ganz im Sinne eines Staffellaufes. Die schnellste Mannschaft, die als erstes die zehn (10) Meilen gelaufen ist, gewinnt! Im Verlauf des Rennens erhalten alle Teilnehmer Bewirtung und Zutritt zu der After-Race Party in der Race-Village.

Kann ich jetzt eine Mannschaft anmelden und zu einem späteren Zeitpunkt Teilnehmer hinzufügen?

Zu Beginn muss nur eine Person der Veranstaltung beitreten und die Anmeldung der Mannschaft, sowie die Zahlung abschließen. Die komplette Anmeldung kann später durch die Eintragung der 10 Läufer der Mannschaft in der Kategorie “Mannschaftsprofil” in der Online Anmeldung auf der Webseite erfolgen.

Wer darf teilnehmen?

Die Anmeldung steht nur Unternehmen und professionellen Organisationen offen. Jede Mannschaft muss zehn (10) Läufer für die Teilnahme an der Veranstaltung gewinnen. Wie auch immer, wir laden alle Mitarbeiter, Freunde und Familienmitglieder ein an den Veranstaltungsort zu kommen und die Läufer anzufeuern oder die Festlichkeiten zu genießen.

Welche Ehrungen finden an dem Abend statt?

Es gibt 5 Ehrungen bei jedem Rennen. Die schnellste Mannschaft erhält die Siegertrophäe; es gibt weiterhin Trophäen für die zweite und dritte Mannschaft, das schnellste Mixed Team und die schnellste weibliche Mannschaft.

Was, wenn wir nicht genug Personen für eine Mannschaft haben?

Jedes Team muss aus 10 Läufern bestehen. Jedoch, wenn aus besonderen Gründen nicht anders möglich (z.B.: kurzfristige Krankheitsfälle oder Verletzungen), liegt die minimale Teilnehmerzahl einer Mannschaft aus 8 Personen. In diesem Fall können zwei Läufer der Mannschaft die Runde zwei Mal laufen. Wir raten euch jedoch, ein paar Reserve-Läufer zu haben, die notfalls einspringen können, da keine Rückerstattungen erfolgen.

Bitte bemerke, dass mindestens 8 Läufer einer Mannschaft in dem Unternehmen angestellt sein müssen. Falls ein Unternehmen weniger als 20 Mitarbeiter hat, ist es erlaubt dass sich das Unternehmen mit einem anderen Unternehmen, das ebenfalls weniger als 20 Mitarbeiter hat, zusammenschließt um eine Mannschaft zu bilden. Jedoch müssen wenigstens 4 Läufer aus dem Unternehmen, das die Anmeldung durchführt, stammen (für weitere Details siehe dir die Teilnahmebedingungen an).

Der Veranstalter hat das Recht, nach eigenem Ermessen einer Mannschaft die Teilnahme zu verweigern, wenn diese Regel nicht eingehalten werden und / oder die Mannschaft nach der Veranstaltung auszuschließen.

Nimmt meine Mannschaft an der Wertung “Mixed Team” teil?

Um sich für die Mixed Team-Kategorie zu qualifizieren, muss eine Mannschaft aus mindestens einem männlichen Läufer und mindestens vier weiblichen Läuferinnen bestehen, die jeweils eine Runde des 1-Meilen-Kurses absolvieren müssen. Der Rest der Mannschaft kann beliebig mit Läufern beiderlei Geschlechter aufgefüllt werden.

  2. If any runners need to do 2 laps, these can NOT be consecutive due to the separate start / finish area.

  5. If a corporation has less than 20 employees or members, they are able to group together with one other corporation that also has less than 20 employees or members in order to form a team, but at least half of the participants in the team must be employees or members from the registered corporation.

RACE RULES

  1. Every team must complete 10 laps of the designated one-mile (1.6km) course.
  2. Participants are required to display their race bib clearly throughout the race on the front of their t-shirt or vest as it contains their race timing chip and will need to be scanned prior to crossing the start line.
  3. Participants must start the race in their correct start wave, as per the team’s running order (1-10) assigned by the Team Captain, to ensure correct personal and team timing.
  4. Should participants wish to walk instead of run during their lap, always keep to the side of the course to prevent blocking other participants.
  5. After finishing a lap, participants must immediately move into the Finish Area, put a mask back on, and not stop until they have exited the area.

What will the event format be?

For the health and safety of all our participants and staff, we will be employing a Time Trial event format this year to reduce contact between team members and other teams, so there will be no team batons or race pens.

Here are some key things to note:

  • Every participant will be given a race bib by their team captain with a built-in timing chip.
  • There will be a separate start and finish line, with participants setting off on the one mile (1.61km) route in 10 separate start waves, one for each runner in a team.
  • Each wave will start at a pre-allocated time and will be called forward in socially distanced lines, pulsed out from the start line at fixed intervals.
  • A team’s 10 individual lap times will be added together to give them a 10-lap (10-mile) team time that will be displayed on the race leaderboard.
  • Each team should consist of 10 participants, but the minimum number of participants per team is 6 - in this situation, 4 participants must run a second lap each for the team to complete all 10 laps (see ‘Team Eligibility & Race Rules’ FAQ for full details).

What COVID-19 regulations do you have in place?

Although the Race Organiser can’t remove all risks associated with the virus due to the nature of the event, they have put measures in place and will be following enhanced procedures to reduce the risk as much as possible.

As COVID-19 regulations are frequently changing the Race Organiser will communicate details of the coronavirus mitigations closer to the event, however, as a minimum the Event will be in line with the Dubai's Supreme Committee of Crisis and Disaster Management updated precautionary measures for events, which includes mask wearing at all times unless engaged with a sports activity.

Other measures the Race Organisers are putting in place in addition to the Dubai's Supreme Committee of Crisis and Disaster Management updated precautionary measures include:

  • Maintaining appropriate social distancing whenever possible;
  • Providing hand sanitizer and masks around venue;
  • Health & Safety Officer approval of all preventive and precautious measures;
  • Creation of a Time Trial event format to reduce contact between team members and other team.

Will there be an After-Party?

After taking into consideration the health and safety of all our participants, guests, staff and stakeholders, we have made the decision not to host an ‘Official After Party’ this year that usually takes place in a third-party venue within the DIFC. However, participants will still be able to enjoy the ‘After-Party’ in the Race Village where there will be music and first-class hospitality for all participants, including a main meal, dessert and soft drinks as part of their entry package.

Can spectators come into the Race Village?

Spectators are not encouraged to attend in order to ensure all our participants can maintain social distancing where possible and there will be no hospitality packages (meals or soft drinks) available to purchase. However, everyone who needs to enter into the Race Village must adhere to our COVID-19 mitigation measures - See “What COVID-19 regulations do you have in place?” FAQ.

Race Postponement – Why was the Sydney race postponed?

The health of our participants, spectators, volunteers, contractors and event staff is our top priority, so in light of the uncertainty regarding the coronavirus outbreak in the lead up to our race on 26th March it is with great regret that we made the decision to postpone the event until next year. We appreciate this may come as disappointing news but we are sure everyone will understand and we very much look forward to welcoming our runners back to the race next year.

Race Postponement – What happens to my company’s race fee?

All team entries from the 2020 race will be automatically rolled over to the next Bloomberg Square Mile Relay in Sydney in 2021.

Race Postponement – Will I automatically be signed up for the next race in Sydney?

All team entries will be automatically rolled over to the next Bloomberg Square Mile Relay in Sydney in 2021. We will be in touch with Team Captain’s in due course with further instructions including how to add runners.

Race Postponement – Will I get notified when the 2021 race is on sale?

All Team Captains and runners who had signed up for the 2020 race will be notified as soon as a date is confirmed, ahead of a wider public announcement, should they want to purchase additional teams.

The Bloomberg Square Mile Relay Tokyo usually takes place annually in the month of May, and we are working with all stakeholders to host the next race in Tokyo’s Marunouchi district in 2023.

Will there be a race in Tokyo in 2022?

Unfortunately, the race will not be returning to Tokyo this year, but we would be excited to include the city as part of our Global Series once again in 2023. Keep an eye on our website for further updates and developments.
