The route for this year’s event was completely revamped to take full advantage of Singapore’s stunning skyline as runners navigate tight turns, sharp bends and flights of stairs. The Bloomberg Square Mile Relay course is set to not only challenge the returning runners on the start line, but also offer a unique, fun and exciting route for first-time participants.
