JUNE 11 RACE POSTPONED UNTIL 2021
The Bloomberg Square Mile Relay San Francisco, scheduled to take place on Thursday June 11, has been postponed until 2021 due to the ongoing Coronavirus outbreak within the city. We appreciate this may come as disappointing news but we are sure everyone will understand and we very much look forward to welcoming our runners back to the race next year. For more information please visit the ‘San Francisco’ section of our FAQs.
This internationally-renowned annual event will provide the perfect opportunity for San Francisco’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 company in the city!
The most important aspect of the race is its commitment to making a difference beyond the finish line – in San Francisco, 25% of team entry fees is donated to The Extra Mile programme in partnership with America Scores – Bay Area 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.
Further announcements for the Bloomberg Square Mile Relay San Francisco 2021 will be made later this year.

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 have confirmed America SCORES Bay Area as The Extra Mile Partner in 2020.
America SCORES Bay Area (SCORES) is a youth development program for children in grades 1-8 during out-of-school time. SCORES partners with public schools in low-income communities to implement a triple play curriculum of soccer, poetry, and civic engagement. SCORES impacts the lives over 1,600 children in 72 schools in San Francisco, Alameda, Marin, and San Mateo Counties.
Youth who participate in SCORES are our “poet-athletes” – a term they proudly embrace. Through dedicated coaches, soccer yields improved fitness, teamwork, and social skills. Poetry allows students to discover their individual voices, all while building critical literacy skills and self-confidence. Civic Engagement helps SCORES students learn how to make a positive, impactful contribution to their communities through semester-long service-learning curricula.
By leveraging the team-work of soccer, the harmony of poetry and the connectedness of civic engagement, our program helps students develop and apply the tools they need to succeed on and off the field.
