Race Overview

SOLD OUT!

For the fourth year running, the Bloomberg Square Mile Relay has sold out in record time ahead of the annual corporate race held on Thursday 9th November.

With only a limited number of team places the must-attend event has clearly become a firm fixture in the annual corporate event calendar.

The Bloomberg Square Mile Relay is not your ordinary running race – every participating company will need 8-10 employees to complete each team, all of whom will run the stunning one mile (1.6km) course, in downtown Central, until 10 laps have been completed.

Every team’s participation in the relay will help fund local charity, Unleash Foundation. Runners can also volunteer with the local Square Mile Relay community on a project aimed to improve the local environment.

Over 347 teams from Hong Kong have taken part in the relay, and 125 businesses 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 AFTER-PARTY

The race will be followed by the famous ‘After-Party’ in the Race Village with music from a live DJ and complimentary hospitality, including a main meal, dessert and three soft or alcoholic drinks, for all the runners. Spectators are also encouraged to join the fun and can buy additional hospitality packages online – this really is an evening not to be missed!

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.
