The winners of the Fastest Mixed Team were Barclays and the Fastest Female Team, Bloomberg - Queen BBG - who flew across the line in 1:14:41.

We now look forward to heading to New York for the next race in the Global Series.
The Extra Mile
Global Community. Local impact.
Every participant in the race will also be able to make an impact through our community program, The Extra Mile. Every mile run will contribute towards raising a USD$30,000 donation by the end of the event, which will be donated to The Extra Mile partner in Japan, Ludens Japan.
Through your participation we are working towards getting thousands of marginalized young people living better, healthier lifestyles.
We also encourage all participants to Go The Extra Mile beyond their participation, and register for our free-to-access Square Mile Club, where every point earned through your activity will further contribute to making a lasting and tangible impact at a global level.
Runners will race each other for position as they navigate tight turns and sharp bends on a unique one-mile (1.6km) route, synonymous with the Bloomberg Square Mile Relay. The Tokyo skyline will provide a dramatic backdrop to a route that will not only challenge returning runners on the start line, but also offers a unique, fun and exciting race for first-time participants.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION – every runner must complete two mini laps of the course to have run 1 complete full lap. There is a clear split point indicated on the course where runners should either continue with their second mini lap if they have only run one mini lap, or proceed to the finish line if they have run two mini laps. Failure for a runner to complete two mini laps (1 complete full lap) will result in an incomplete full lap and an automatic 10 minute penalty will be added to the runner's existing time e.g. if a runner only completes one mini lap in 3 minutes and fails to complete their second mini lap, their total complete full lap time will be 13 minutes.
