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 twists and turns on a challenging course that takes full advantage of Singapore’s stunning skyline, right in the heart of the Lion City’s financial district.
