Congratulations to all 450 runners that took on and completed the second edition of the Bloomberg Square Mile Relay in San Francisco - check out the full results here.
Over 45 teams from San Francisco’s biggest businesses took to the start line but it was Strava that took the title, completing their 10 laps of the one-mile route in a time of 52:51 to lift the coveted trophy and become the ‘fastest firm in the city’!
Competing fiercely for top spot were last year’s winners Dodge & Cox and Bank of America Merrill Lynch coming in just behind Strava in a time of 55:22 and 57:45 respectively. Individually, the fastest runner Trevor Reinhart from Dodge & Cox completed the 1.6km route in an incredible time of 4:29. Silicon Valley Bank were the winners of the Fastest Mixed Team award, with a time of 58:03.
This year the Bloomberg Square Mile Relay will take place in 11 cities across the world, including, Dubai, Sydney, New York, Tokyo, Paris, San Francisco, London, Shanghai, Sao Paulo, Singapore and Hong Kong! The baton is now handed to Sao Paulo on August 23rd, so make sure you challenge your colleagues!
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 San Francisco 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.
