One team. Ten runners. One mile each.
Team entries are now open for the Bloomberg Square Mile Relay Dubai 2020! The Global Series, which will take place in 12 cities worldwide, is returning to the DIFC on Wednesday 12th February for Dubai's 5th anniversary of the race with at least US$20,000 being donated to The Extra Mile charity programme.
This is not your ordinary running race – every participating company will need 10 employees to complete each team, all of whom will run the stunning one-mile (1.6km) course in relay style, starting and finishing from The Gate Building, DIFC. Awards will then be presented to the fastest runner, the fastest female team, the fastest mixed team, and fastest three teams overall.
With record numbers competing in our relays across the globe, we are anticipating next year’s Dubai leg of the Global Series to sell-out once again so make sure you book early to avoid disappointment. Early Bird team places are limited, so book now before prices go up!
Your lap. Your cause. Your impact.
We are committed to making a difference beyond the finish line by contributing to a cause that’s important in your city. Through The Extra Mile you can choose which cause our partner charity will support, using the power of sport to address social challenges in your community. The faster you run, the better the chance your cause has of receiving the donation. The Extra Mile charity partner and causes will be revealed shortly.
The After Party
The race is not just about running! Once runners have completed their lap, they can enjoy first-class hospitality, including complimentary food and soft drinks in our Race Village, before heading on to the Official After-Party where there will be music and house beverages in order to continue post-race celebrations! Additional hospitality packages are available to purchase for friends or colleagues if they want to come along and support your team - this is an evening not to be missed!
