Race Overview

One Team. Ten Runners. One Mile Each. 

The Bloomberg Square Mile Relay, the one-of-a-kind, immersive team-building experience, will be returning to Dubai on Wednesday 7th February 2018, for the first race of the 2018 global series that now takes place in 10 cities worldwide!

Register now to ensure your company secures a place amongst up to 1,000 other runners in the UAE’s ultimate corporate relay race.

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.

Last year, 75  teams from Dubai’s biggest businesses took part in the relay, and corporations will not only gear up to compete for the coveted relay trophy in 2018, but also to enjoy the fantastic team bonding and networking opportunities at the event. 


The relay culminates with a fantastic celebration and 'After-Party', open to all runners and spectators at the DIFC where the night kicks off with a live DJ as the sun sets and race results come in. Runners are able to enjoy complimentary hospitality as part of their race entry package (including main meal, dessert and soft drinks), but supporters can also purchase additional hospitality packages online, should they want to enjoy the hospitality on offer.
