MAY 7 RACE POSTPONED
The Bloomberg Square Mile Relay New York, scheduled to take place on Thursday May 7, has been postponed due to the ongoing Coronavirus outbreak within the city. We are now working closely with all our stakeholders and local authorities to try and bring the race to life later this year so our relay community can come back together in a positive way for another exciting race experience and a worthy cause. For more information please visit the ‘New York’ section of our FAQs.
Your lap. Your cause. Your impact.
The internationally-renowned annual event is a one-of-a-kind, immersive team-building experience that provides the perfect opportunity for New York’s top businesses to come together, as teams of ten employees each take turns to run the unique one-mile (1.6km) route, all in a bid to be crowned the fastest firm in the city! We are officially sold-out for the 2020 race, with over 100 teams joining us on the start line. To add your company to the waiting list please register your interest.
The most important aspect of the race is its commitment to making a difference beyond the finish line – in New York, 25% of team entry fees is donated to The Extra Mile programme in partnership with 9/11 Memorial & Museum who will address a social challenge in the city allowing for a sustained impact long after the final runners have crossed the finish line.
The best part is, you get to decide where funds go by choosing the cause you care about the most - the faster you run, the better the chance your cause has of receiving the donation!
With awards for the three fastest teams, fastest mixed team and fastest female team, the competition will be hotter than ever. The city’s biggest businesses and corporations not only gear up to compete for the coveted relay trophies, but also to enjoy the fantastic team bonding and networking opportunities at the event.
The After Party
Open to runners and spectators alike, the relay culminates in a fantastic 'After-Party' celebration in the Race Village, with complimentary hospitality for all relay participants, where the night kicks off with live music as the sun sets and race results come in.

New York - The Extra Mile
The Extra Mile helps participants of the Bloomberg Square Mile Relay contribute to their city in a bigger, better way. We are delighted to be working with 9/11 Memorial & Museum as The Extra Mile Partner in New York once again in 2020. In 2019 they received a donation of $35,572 to deliver a year-long programme on the issue of Education.
When you run with purpose, you run The Extra Mile – our unique program that makes a tangible social difference to your city, which will last long after the teams cross the finish line.
Simply by participating in the race, a percentage of your team’s race fee will be donated to The Extra Mile program in New York, which will support and promote projects over the next year using the power of sport and physical activity. The best part is, you get to help decide where the funds go by choosing a cause you care about and running for it. When you complete your personal profile on our website you will choose one of three cause to run for. Then, on race night, your lap in the Bloomberg Square Mile Relay won’t just be for your team, but also for The Extra Mile cause you selected.
The cause with the quickest average time from all our runners will win the donation, a minimum of US$20,000, which 9/11 Memorial & Museum will use to address the winning cause across a year-long project.
