We have greatly missed hosting you and your team of colleagues at the Bloomberg Square Mile Relay due to the prolonged and unexpected impact of the pandemic.
Unfortunately, the race will not be returning to San Francisco this year, but we would be excited to include the city as part of our Global Series once again in 2023. If you are a Team Captain and had an entry for our 2020 race, please check your emails and for more information please visit the ‘San Francisco’ section of our FAQs. We appreciate this may come as disappointing news to many, but we thank you for your continued support and ongoing patience.
We plan to be back bigger and better than ever in 2023 for the fourth Bloomberg Square Mile Relay San Francisco - bring it on!
Want to compete in a virtual challenge?
You can of course still join our global community and have an impact through our charity program, The Extra Mile, by registering for our free-to-access Bloomberg Square Mile Virtual Club.
We are committed to donating US$390,000 annually to The Extra Mile, and this year each charity partner in our 13 race city locations will receive US$30,000 to make a positive impact towards three key areas – education, public health, and social justice and equality.
The Virtual Club platform encourages you to get active in order to improve your mental and physical wellbeing through a range of activities, challenges and races. You can take part alongside your colleagues or other members and companies within the global community - you can even create your own bespoke company event!

Runners will race each other as they navigate tight turns and sharp bends on a unique one-mile (1.6km) route, synonymous with the Bloomberg Square Mile Relay. The iconic San Francisco skyline will be the dramatic backdrop to a route that will challenge returning runners and offer a unique, fun and exciting race for first-time participants.

The Extra Mile
Global Community. Local impact.
While we cannot meet to race in person, we are still committed to continuing the great work and hugely positive impact of The Extra Mile program around the world.
Each of your recorded activities, physical or mental, will earn credits, which you can use to vote for a specific cause. The Extra Mile charity partner in San Francisco, America Scores, will use a donation of US$25,000 to continue giving their vital support to their community by addressing the cause with most votes from the community in November 2021.
1000 points on the platform will earn you 200 credits and the right to cast 1 vote for the cause of your choice. The more points and credits you earn, the more votes you can cast for your cause.
By signing up to the Virtual Club, connecting your tracking app and earning your credits through your activity, you can have a decisive say in where the donation for your city will be used. So, get out there and start earning points and credits!
