One Team. Ten Runners. One Mile Each.
Team entries are not yet open, but the Bloomberg Square Mile Relay, will be returning to Singapore on Thursday 25th October for a sixth year as part of the 2018 global series that now takes place in 11 cities worldwide! This is not your ordinary running race – every participating company will need 10 employees to complete each team, all of whom will run the stunning one-mile (1.6km) course located at The Promontory @ Marina Bay.
Singapore’s biggest businesses took part in the fifth relay last year, where reigning champions Macquarie took the title for the fifth time of running! Corporations will once again gear up to compete for the coveted relay trophy, but also to enjoy the fantastic team bonding and networking opportunities at the event.
With record numbers competing in our relays across the globe already in 2018, we are anticipating this year’s Singapore's leg of the Global Series to be even bigger than last year’s, with space on the starting line likely to be tight.
The famous After-Party will see live music from a top DJ and first-class hospitality for all runners including complimentary food (main meal and dessert) and drinks (three alcoholic or soft drinks) - spectators are also encouraged to join the fun and can buy additional hospitality packages online. This really is an evening not to be missed!
Check out the route that runners took in the 2017 Bloomberg Square Mile Relay in Singapore last year. The route for 2018 will be announced in the coming months.
The unique one-mile (1.6km) route for the race in Singapore is synonymous with the Bloomberg Square Mile Relay – starting from the Promontory @ Marina Bay, runners will have to navigate tight turns and sharp bends on a challenging course that takes full advantage of Singapore’s stunning skyline, right in the heart of the Lion City’s financial district.

After a decade of expansion, Bloomberg Square Mile Relay is now in 11 of the world’s most vibrant cities. 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.
Via online voting, residents in each of the 11 cities select an initiative that uses sport to address a local issue they are passionate about. Then, the Square Mile Relay community of runners and spectators support the chosen project in a number of ways:
• Funding - a portion of each team's entry fee is donated to the designated project
• Service - runners and race fans have the opportunity to give back through service hours prior to race day as well as throughout the year
• Celebration - on race night, we highlight the impact made and celebrate as one team
We encourage your teams to go beyond race night in giving back to your own community. With the collective strength of our global races – from those who run in them, to those who cheer them on – we can change our communities.
Not only do we run these cities – we care about them, too.
