The Bloomberg Square Mile Relay 2017 in New York saw Wells Fargo retain their title in a time of 55:06, outrunning more than 70 other teams to lift the coveted trophy and become the 'fastest firm in the city'!
Competing fiercely for top spot were Barclays Credit only 10 seconds behind in 55:16 and Hudson River Trading closely following in third with a time of 56:49. Individually, the fastest runner Peter Bartlett completed the one-mile route in an incredible time of 4:49. Citi 1 were the inaugural winners of the Fastest Mixed Team award, with a time of 57:02, and also finishing in fourth place on the night!
More than 700 runners from New York's biggest businesses took part in the second annual Bloomberg Square Mile Relay, racing through the streets of the iconic Financial District in Manhattan. Check out the full results here.
This is a race unlike any other in New York - synonymous with the Square Mile Relay, runners will be taken on a unique one-mile route around the heart of the city's Financial District, including Water Street and Wall Street.
Long straights mean you can stretch those legs and get up to full speed, but the sharp turns will require quick feet in order to post a good time for your team. Returning runners will see the course is the same as last year, so can try to better their time!
