Congratulations to all runners that took on and completed the very first Bloomberg Square Mile Relay in Sao Paulo!
Over 50 teams from the city’s biggest business took to the start line but it was OMINT that took the title, completing their 10 laps of the one-mile course in a time of 55:41 to lift the coveted trophy and become the ‘fastest firm in the city’!
Competing fiercely for top spot were Itaú Private and Oracle in a time of 01:07:21 and 01:07:39 respectively. Individually, the fastest runner Felipe Carlos completed the one-mile route in an incredible time of 4:42. Care Club were the inaugural winners of the Fastest Mixed Team award, with a time of 01:07:55.
Bloomberg Square Mile Relay is proud to partner with Parque Ibirapuera Conservação, the non-profit organization dedicated to conserving and protecting Ibirapuera Park, São Paulo's largest urban park that receives approximately 220,000 visitors a week. A donation will be made on the night of the event to support their dedicated work in conserving and protecting the park to ensure it is clean, safe, beautiful and accessible to everyone. Runners also will be invited to join Bloomberg employees, friends and family to participate in a special conservation project in the park in order to have a positive impact on the city. The collective effort of 7500+ runners across 10 cites will positively impact our global community of race cities reinforcing Bloomberg’s long standing commitment to strengthening and improving lives in the communities where we live and work.
