Race Overview

It’s Race Day for Tokyo’s first Bloomberg Square Mile Relay taking place on Naka-Dori Street in Marunouchi on Friday evening.

Team captains will need to arrive in the Race Village at 3:00pm, with the rest of the team at 3:30pm. At 4:00pm a warm-up will take place, led by Tipness, before the race starts at 4:30pm. For the full event schedule please scroll down.

We have provided changing rooms so that you can swap into your running kit before the start of the race. It is in the Mitsubishi Building at ground floor level. There is also a bag check at the same location so that you can store your bags during the event. Just peel off the luggage label on your runner bib and attach it to your bag before handing it over to our staff.

Changing room location

The race culminates in the famous celebratory after-party where runners and supporters will enjoy food, drinks and live entertainment throughout the evening in the Race Village. Hospitality will be open to everyone in the Race Village – runners will receive a meal, dessert and three alcoholic or soft drinks as part of their team entry, but additional food and drink will also be available for supporters to purchase from the hospitality voucher booth in the main tent, so your colleagues and friends can also join in the fun – this is an evening not to be missed!

Japan

Japan Association for Refugees

Community Partner

The Bloomberg Square Mile Relay is delighted to support the Japanese Association for Refugees (JAR) as the event's official Community Partner for our inaugural race in Tokyo. Every company's team entry in the race will help contribute towards a 2,000,000 JPY donation to the charity. Your participation will help to ensure JAR can continue its great work of refugee protection experts providing comprehensive assistance for individual refugees, from the critical stage immediately following their arrival until they can lead a self-supporting life. In addition to directly supporting refugees in need, JAR actively works on advocacy and networking to promote institutional reform, as well as public relations campaigns. JAR will be presented with a charitable cheque on behalf of the Bloomberg Square Mile Relay on the night of the race.

Playground

Playground of Hope

Global Cause, Local Impact.

In an effort to reinforce our commitment to giving back, we have evolved how we contribute to the communities we run in. Every team's participation will help fund a local revitalisation project that will allow runners to volunteer with the local Square Mile Relay community and 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.

The race does not end here! On Saturday, Sep 2, the Bloomberg Square Mile Relay community, in partnership with Playground of Hope, will undertake a large-scale volunteer project.

Bring your friends and partners to build a fun, safe playground for children living at a care home in Oiso, Kanagawa. Join the celebration barbecue after the build with the children. Stay tuned for more info.
