Work Together. Race Together. Celebrate Together.
Team entries are not yet open, but the Bloomberg Square Mile Relay, will be returning to Hong Kong on Thursday 8th November, for a fifth year, as part of the 2018 global series that now takes place in 11 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 located at Edinburgh Place.
Hong Kong’s biggest businesses took part in the city's fourth relay last year, 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.
This is not your ordinary running race – each corporate team has 10 runners, all of whom will run our unique one-mile route in relay style, starting and finishing from the Race Village. All runners will receive first class hospitality, including complimentary food and drinks, whilst celebrating in the famous After-Party with live music from a top DJ. Spectators are also encouraged to join the fun and can buy additional hospitality packages. This is an evening not to be missed!
One team. Ten runners. One mile each.
How fast can #WeRunThisCity?
Runners will race each other for position as they navigate tight turns and sharp bends on a unique one-mile (1.6km) route, synonymous with the Bloomberg Square Mile Relay. The Hong Kong skyline will provide a dramatic backdrop to a route that will not only challenge 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 fourth Bloomberg Square Mile Relay in Hong Kong last year. The exact route for 2018 will be announced in the coming weeks.
Edinburgh Place, Central
After a decade of expansion, Bloomberg Square Mile Relay is now in 11 of the world’s most vibrant cities. This year, we are proud to introduce The Extra Mile: a chance to make an impact way beyond the finish line and contribute to philanthropy in a bigger, better way.
The Extra Mile is a community-led initiative by Bloomberg Square Mile Relay, which addresses a unique social challenge in each city. It gives runners and spectators alike the opportunity to make a meaningful and actionable difference to public health, education, arts or the environment of their communities, all through using the power of sport.
Via online voting, residents in each of the 11 cities select an initiative that uses sport to address a local issue they are passionate about. Then, the Square Mile Relay community of runners and spectators support the chosen project in a number of ways:
• Funding - a portion of each team's entry fee is donated to the designated project
• Service - runners and race fans have the opportunity to give back through service hours prior to race day as well as throughout the year
• Celebration - on race night, we highlight the impact made and celebrate as one team
We encourage your teams to go beyond race night in giving back to your own community. With the collective strength of our global races – from those who run in them, to those who cheer them on – we can change our communities.
Not only do we run these cities – we care about them, too.
