The Extra Mile

In an effort to reinforce our commitment to giving back, we have evolved how we contribute to the communities we run in. Unlike past years where the winning team's nominated charity received a cheque donation, every team's participation will help fund a local revitalisation project that will allow runners to volunteer with the local Square Mile Relay community and have a positive impact on the city. The collective effort of 7500+ runners across 10 cites will positively impact our global community of race cities reinforcing Bloomberg’s long standing commitment to strengthening and improving lives in the communities where we live and work.
