The Bloomberg Square Mile Relay returned to the streets of Singapore for the Fifth time in 2017. Over 1350 runners took on and completed the 1-mile course - check out the full results here.
Over 135 teams from the city’s biggest business took to the start line but it was reigning champions Macquarie that took the title for the fifth time running, completing their 10 laps of the one-mile course in a time of 54:58 to lift the coveted trophy and become the ‘fastest firm in the city’!
Competing fiercely for top spot were Standard Chartered Bank and GIC coming in just behind Macquarie in a time of 55:21 and 56:31 respectively. Individually, the fastest runner, Ashley Miles completed the one-mile route in an incredible time of 4:52. Bloomberg Dream Team were the winners of the Fastest Mixed Team award, beating over 60 other mixed teams with a time of 1:01:39.
This year our runners went THE EXTRA MILE and took part in a Volunteer Day with Habitat for Humanity Singapore. All Bloomberg Square Mile Relay participants had the opportunity to revitalize shared living spaces for thousands of residents through a home cleaning and litter picking programme.
The unique one-mile (1.6km) route for the race in Singapore is synonymous with the Bloomberg Square Mile Relay – starting from the Promontory @ Marina Bay, runners will have to navigate tight turns and sharp bends on a challenging course that takes full advantage of Singapore’s stunning skyline, right in the heart of the Lion City’s financial district.
