The Bloomberg Square Mile Relay will be returning to Tokyo in 2020 for the fourth year.
We are committed to making a difference beyond the finish line – 25% of team entry fees will be donated to The Extra Mile charity programme in partnership with Special Olympics who will 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!
This is also a one-of-a-kind, immersive team-building experience that includes full hospitality and an after-party once you’ve finished the race. Ensure your company secures a place amongst up to 700 other runners in Tokyo’s ultimate corporate relay race.
Every participating company will need 10 employees to complete each team, all of whom will run the stunning one mile (1.6km) course around Marunouchi.
Last year, 70 teams from Tokyo’s biggest businesses took part in the relay, and corporations will not only gear up to compete for the coveted relay trophy in 2020, but also to enjoy the fantastic team bonding and networking opportunities at the event.
The After Party
The relay culminates with a fantastic celebration and 'After-Party', open to all runners and spectators at the Race Village in Marunouchi where the night kicks off with music as the sun sets and race results come in.
The date for the 2020 race in Tokyo will be announced later this 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.
