Going The Extra Mile
When you participate in physical activity through the Square Mile Club, you're helping to support these community causes. Every step you make is having an impact on the world. Further to the US$390,000 donated across the 13 race cities, an additional US$350,000 is split across our three Bloomberg Square Mile Club Partners.
Proudly sponsored by:
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.

Global Community. Local impact.
While we cannot meet to race in person, we are still committed to continuing the great work and hugely positive impact of The Extra Mile program around the world.
Each of your recorded activities, physical or mental, will earn credits, which you can use to vote for a specific cause. The Extra Mile charity partner in Tokyo, Ludens Japan / Coaches Across Continents, will use a donation of US$25,000 to continue giving their vital support to their community by addressing the cause with most votes from the community in November 2021.
1000 points on the platform will earn you 200 credits and the right to cast 1 vote for the cause of your choice. The more points and credits you earn, the more votes you can cast for your cause.
By signing up to the Virtual Club, connecting your tracking app and earning your credits through your activity, you can have a decisive say in where the donation for your city will be used. So, get out there and start earning points and credits!
