One Team. Ten Runners. One Mile Each.
The Bloomberg Square Mile Relay Paris will be the 11th city in the global series, and will be heading to Paris in 2019.
The internationally-renowned annual event, on average sees 1,000 runners from the corporate community take to the streets to complete the unique one-mile (1.6km) route and will provide the perfect opportunity for Paris’s top businesses to come together, as teams of ten employees each take it in turn to run the unique one-mile (1.6km) route, all in a bid to be crowned the fastest company in in the city.
The race culminates in the famous celebratory after-party where runners and supporters will enjoy food, drinks and live entertainment throughout the evening in the Race Village. This is a fantastic opportunity for organisations to create and build team spirit, boost employee engagement and to promote an active lifestyle in the workplace.
Watch out for the new Paris date to be launched soon and register your interest today.
The Bloomberg Square Mile Relay course is set to offer a unique, fun and exciting route for our first-time participants. Set amidst Nanterre, Paris La Défense and around the U-Arena, runners will compete along a one-mile (1.6km) course.

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.
Not only do we run these cities - we care about them, too.
In Paris, The Extra Mile will team up with sport-for-development organization PLAY International to provide programming that will generate new solutions that use sport to promote the social inclusion of refugees.
The relay community will soon have a chance to volunteer in interactive and exciting activities that addresses this winning challenge and kicks off the yearlong support of The Extra Mile in Paris. Please join us and go the extra mile yourself by participating in one of the upcoming volunteer days, it will be an experience you’ll never forget!
