How does the event work?

There are ten runners on every team, each of whom run a one-mile lap, relay style. The fastest team to complete the full ten miles wins!

What if we don’t have enough people for a team?

Each team is required to have 10 runners to take part in the race. However, in exceptional circumstances (due to last minute illness or injury) the minimum number of people per team that we would permit is 8. In this situation we allow 2 members of the team to run twice, but no more than that. We would advise you to have reserves that would be willing to step in if you find yourself with last minute dropouts

What time will the event finish?

We expect the last runners to finish by 8:30pm. This is immediately followed by the presentation of the trophies in the race village, where runners and spectators are able to enjoy food, drink and live music. The evening will end around 10:00pm. 

This is only a guide, please check your specific event for accurate timings.

What awards are available on the night?

The fastest team will receive the winner’s trophy; there are also trophies for the second and third placed teams, the fastest mixed team and the fastest individual.

Does my team qualify for the Fastest Mixed Team category?

A mixed team is defined as a team with a minimum of four women and at least one man. The rest of the 10-person team can be made up of either gender.

How to register?

You can register your team by completing the Entry Form on the website.

Can I register a team now and recruit team members later?

Yes, registration is open and only one person needs to enter and complete payment for the team. Following your completed team entry you will be able to submit all 10 runners on your team in your team’s profile section of the website. A minimum of eight (8) runners on each team must be employed full time by the corporation entering a team in the race. The Event Organizer has the right to refuse entry to any team at their sole discretion if this rule is not adhered to and/or disqualify them from the race following the event.

Please check your specific race city for team submission deadline.

I've signed up, what happens now?

After completing the initial form on the website a member of the team will be in contact by email to confirm your method or payment. Once payment for your team is complete you will receive an email confirming your entry with log in details to create your account and instructions on how to invite team members to join and sign-up to your runners and how to complete the online Injury Waiver Process. Each Team Captain will need to complete the process of adding runners to their team and ensure each team member creates their own personal profile and edits their profile to accept the injury waiver terms before the team will be able to race.

What is included in the Race Pack?

Event Information, Route Map and Schedule, and Race Bibs which display key information including their team number, race number, baggage drop voucher and food and drink vouchers.

When will I receive my Race Pack?

As the team captain, it is your responsibility to ensure each runner has their race number in the order that you enter your runners on the form online in your Team Profile section. 

I haven't received my Race Pack?

The race packets are mailed out the week before the race. If you haven’t received your race pack, please check that your entry fee has been paid – without this we are unable to send out your race packet. If you have paid and haven’t received your race pack, please contact the Bloomberg Square Mile Relay team via the contact form and we can check the situation for you.

I haven't managed to get the whole team to sign the Injury Waiver Form - what should I do?

The Injury Waiver Form is a document that must be signed by each runner in order to participate in the race. Even if you can’t get all of the signatures to us in advance, we do ask that you at least send through the names of the runners in the correct running order. If you are missing any signatures we are able to accept them at the registration tent at event. Once we have all 10 we will be able to register your team and give you your race baton.
