Your lap. Your cause. Your impact.
The next Bloomberg Square Mile Relay in Tokyo is planned to take place in 2021. The race is a one-of-a-kind, immersive team-building experience where every participating team needs 10 employees from a company, all of whom will run the stunning one-mile (1.6km) course around Marunouchi in relay format.
The most important aspect of the race is that it is committed to making a difference beyond the finish line - 25% of team entry fees is donated to The Extra Mile charity programme in partnership with Special Olympics who use the power of sport to address a social challenge in the city.
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!
The city’s biggest businesses and corporations not only gear up to compete for the coveted relay trophy, but also to enjoy the fantastic team bonding and networking opportunities at the event. There is a limited capacity of 70 teams, so companies will need to be quick off the mark to ensure their employees are amongst up to 700 other runners in Tokyo’s ultimate corporate relay race.
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 music as the sun sets and race results come in.
Further announcements for the Bloomberg Square Mile Relay planned to take place in Tokyo’s Marunouchi district in 2021 will be made at the start of next year.

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 mini two 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 runners 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.

The Extra Mile helps participants of the Bloomberg Square Mile Relay contribute to their city in a bigger, better way.
Simply by participating in the race, 25% of your team’s race fee will be donated to The Extra Mile program in Tokyo, which will use the power of sport and physical activity to address a social challenge. The best part is, you get to help choose where those funds go by choosing which cause you care about the most and running for it.
When you complete your personal profile on our website you will choose one of three causes to run for; Inclusion, Education or Health. Then, on race night, your lap in the Bloomberg Square Mile Relay won’t just be for your team, but for The Extra Mile cause that you choose too.
The cause with the quickest average time will win a minimum donation of JPY 2,200,000. Last year Special Olympics Nippon received a donation of $20,000 to deliver a year-long programme on the issue of Education.
