Race Overview

One Team. Ten Runners. One Mile Each. 

Team entries are now open for the Bloomberg Square Mile Relay, the one-of-a-kind, immersive team-building experience, returning to Dubai on Wednesday 13th February 2019, for the first race of the 2019 global series that now takes place in 12 cities worldwide! 

This is not your ordinary running race – every participating company will need 10 employees to complete each team, all of whom will run the stunning one mile (1.6km) course around the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) and the iconic Gate Building.

Over 77 of Dubai’s biggest businesses have already taken part in the relay, and corporations will once again gear up to compete for the coveted relay trophy, but also to enjoy the fantastic team bonding and networking opportunities at the event.


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 main meal, dessert and soft drinks), and supporters can purchase additional hospitality packages online should they also want to enjoy the hospitality on offer.

Following the race awards presentation there will be an Official After-Party where runners will receive a complimentary house beverage, with guests also welcome so that everyone can enjoy the party atmosphere – this really is an evening not to be missed!


We are committed to making a difference beyond the finish line by contributing to a cause that’s important in your city. Through The Extra Mile, you can choose which cause our partner charity will support, using the power of sport to address social challenges in your city. The faster you run, the better the chance your cause has of receiving the donation.

The stunning skyline provides a dramatic backdrop to the race course that challenges returning runners on the start line, but also offers a unique, fun and exciting race for first-time participants.

Dubai - The Extra Mile

The Extra Mile helps participants of the Bloomberg Square Mile Relay contribute to their city in a bigger, better way. We are delighted to be working with Emirates Red Crescent as The Extra Mile Partner in 2019.

The Red Crescent in Dubai works to promote the spirit of solidarity and compassion within the community, and thanks to the support of the Bloomberg Square Mile Relay, as well as many other benefactors, can continue its charitable programs and projects in the humanitarian field for those in need. The Red Crescent Branch in Dubai has become a centre for humanitarian and relief services, conducting 185 development projects in 13 countries around the world. Both locally and internationally, they coordinate awareness programs, first aid, and the protection and control of epidemics, as well as providing humanitarian assistance for vulnerable, needy people across a variety of causes and when disasters occur.

For the 2019 Dubai relay, US$20,000 will go to Red Crescent. Funds will be used to address the winning cause.
