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 Extra Mile charity partner and causes will be revealed shortly.

The Course

Set amidst the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC), runners challenge each other for position as they navigate tight turns, sharp bends, and flights of stairs on this unique one mile (1.6km) route, synonymous with the Bloomberg Square Mile Relay. 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. Check out the route that runners took for the third Bloomberg Square Mile Relay in Dubai earlier this year.

Dubai - The Extra Mile

The Extra Mile helps participants of the Bloomberg Square Mile Relay contribute to their city in a bigger, better way. 

When you run in the Bloomberg Square Mile Relay, you take part in The Extra Mile simply by running for a cause you care about. The faster you run, the better the chance your cause has of receiving the donation.

Working with our chosen charity partner in Dubai, we will use the power of sport to address a social challenge in your city. Runners will choose one of three causes to run for, and on race night your lap in the Bloomberg Square Mile Relay won’t just be for your team, but for your Extra Mile cause too. The cause with the quickest average time will win the donation of US$20,000.

Simply by participating in the race, a percentage of your team’s race fee will be donated to invest in projects that use the power of sport and physical activity to support the winning cause over the next year and there will be further opportunities to get further involved through service and volunteering. 

The Extra Mile charity partner and causes will be revealed shortly.
