50 teams from the city’s biggest businesses took to the start line but it was Mitsubishi UFJ Trust and Banking that took the title, completing their 10 laps of the one-mile course in a time of 58:17 to lift the coveted trophy and become the ‘Fastest Firm in the City’!
Competing fiercely for top spot were Bloomberg BMAX in second place with a time of 1:00:09 and Mizuho Securities came third with a time of 1:00:32. The winners of the Fastest Mixed Team were Barclays and the Fastest Female Team, Bloomberg - Queen BBG - who flew across the line in 1:14:41.

Runners will race each other for position as they navigate tight turns and sharp bends on a unique one-mile (1.6km) route, synonymous with the Bloomberg Square Mile Relay. The Tokyo skyline will provide a dramatic backdrop to a route that will not only challenge returning runners on the start line, but also offers a unique, fun and exciting race for first-time participants.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION – every runner must complete two mini laps of the course to have run 1 complete full lap. There is a clear split point indicated on the course where runners should either continue with their second mini lap if they have only run one mini lap or proceed to the finish line if they have run mini two laps. Failure for a runner to complete two mini laps (1 complete full lap) will result in an incomplete full lap and an automatic 10 minute penalty will be added to the runners existing time e.g. if a runner only completes one mini lap in 3 minutes and fails to complete their second mini lap, their total complete full lap time will be 13 minutes.
