Dubai, are you ready?! One team. Ten runners. One mile each.
The 2024 Global Race Series is here and we are kicking off the first race of the season in Dubai on Thursday 15th February.
This is not your ordinary running race – every participating company will need 10 runners, all of whom will run the stunning one mile (1.6km) course around the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) and the iconic Gate Building.
Team entry is currently exclusively for Bloomberg Clients. If you don't have an access code to enter please get in touch with your Bloomberg contact. If you are interested in entering and you are not currently a Bloomberg client please register your interest here.
The relay culminates with a fantastic celebration in the Race Village, open to all runners and spectators at the DIFC, where the night kicks off with music as the sun sets and race results come in. Runners are able to enjoy complimentary hospitality in the Race Village as part of their race entry package (including a main meal, dessert and soft drinks).
With awards for top three fastest overall teams, fastest mixed team and fastest female team, the competition will be on.

Global Community. Local impact.
Every participant in the race will be able to make an impact through our community program, The Extra Mile. The Extra Mile addresses unique social challenges in communities where we live and work, through three philanthropy pillars: Education, Public Health and Social Justice & Equality.
In Dubai, every mile run will contribute towards raising a USD$30,000 donation by the end of the event, which will be donated to our local community partner, UAE Food Bank.
Through your participation we are working towards helping thousands of marginalised young people living better, healthier lifestyles in 2023.
About UAE Food Bank
UAE Food Bank is a non-profit organisation working under the umbrella of Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Global Initiatives. Its main aim is to end hunger through reducing food waste and distributing excess food to those in need across United Arab Emirates, Lebanon, Sudan, Senegal, and the Philippines. The work of UAE Food Bank aims to position Dubai to be the first city in the region to achieve zero food waste.
Starting in front of the famous Gate Building at the Dubai International Financial Centre, runners will challenge each other for position as they navigate tight turns, sharp bends, and flights of stairs on a unique one mile (1.61km) route, synonymous with the Bloomberg Square Mile Relay.
