CONGRATULATIONS and thank you to everyone who took part in the Bloomberg Square Mile Relay on May 3. What a fantastic celebration of our third race in New York, and the third of the 2018 Global Race Series - we hope you had a great time!
Over 750 runners made their way around the unique and challenging one-mile (1.6km) route around Seaport District and Lower Manhattan, and the title of 'The Fastest Business in the City' went to Citi, with a winning time of 53:22. Coming in second place was Barclays, with a time of 55:01, very closely followed by Deutsche Bank in third with 55:03.
Also victorious on the night were The D.E. Shaw Group, who beat 25 other mixed teams to walk away as the winners of the 'Fastest Mixed Team' award with a time of 1:02:45 and Logan Yu from Citi claimed the 'Fastest Runner' trophy, sprinting the one-mile route in a rapid 4:42.
This year the Bloomberg Square Mile Relay will take place in eleven cities across the world, including, Dubai, Sydney, New York, Tokyo, Paris, San Francisco, London, Shanghai, Sao Paulo, Singapore and Hong Kong! Challenge your international counterparts and see who can run their city the fastest!
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 New York 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.

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.
In each city, The Square Mile Relay community of runners and spectators support the chosen charitable 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
In New York, The Extra Mile has teamed up with 9/11 Memorial & Museum to harness the power of sport to engage local youth from across the city through a series of opportunities truly unique to this city.
