Starting in front of the famous Gate Building at the Dubai International Financial Centre, runners will challenge each other for position as they navigate tight turns, sharp bends, and flights of stairs on a unique one mile (1.61km) route, synonymous with the Bloomberg Square Mile Relay.
The race will be in a Time Trial format, to reduce contact between and amongst teams, so there will be separate start and finish points, with every runner wearing a race bib that contains their timing chip and being pulsed out in waves according to their team’s runner order number.

The Extra Mile
Global Community. Local impact.
Every participant in the race will also be able to make an impact through our charity program, The Extra Mile. Every mile run will contribute towards raising a USD$30,000 donation by the end of the event, which will be donated to our local charity partner in Dubai, UAE Food Bank, to fund their programmes focused on donating food packages to communities in need and reducing food wastage in the country.
The UAE Food Bank is a non-profit organization, working under the umbrella of Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Global Initiatives. It’s main target is to end hunger by fulfilling goal #2 under the UN Sustainable Development Goals – Zero Hunger. Not only have UAE Food Bank succeeded in feeding the people in need in the region, but also globally, in some countries like Lebanon, Sudan, Senegal and Philippines. Additionally, the UAE Food Bank tackled food waste reduction in the UAE by distributing excess food to those in need. Food waste was eliminated by collaborating with local authorities, as well as international charities, to create a comprehensive ecosystem to efficiently store, package and distribute excess food from hotels, restaurants, supermarkets and food trading companies.
We also encourage all participants to Go The Extra Mile beyond their participation, and register for our free-to-access Bloomberg Square Mile Virtual Club, where every point earned through your activity will further contribute to making a lasting and tangible impact at a global level.
