Team entries are not yet open, but the Bloomberg Square Mile Relay, will be returning to San Francisco on Thursday 2nd August, for a second year as part of the 2018 global series that now takes place in 11 cities worldwide! 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 located on Pier 27.
San Francisco’s biggest businesses took part in the inaugural relay last year, and corporations will once again gear up to compete for the coveted relay trophy, but also to enjoy the fantastic team bonding and networking opportunities at the event.
With record numbers competing in our relays across the globe already in 2018, we are anticipating this year’s San Francisco leg of the Global Series to be even bigger than last year’s, with space on the starting line likely to be tight. Early Bird pricing end on Friday 27th April, so book early to avoid disappointment!
The famous After-Party will see live music from a top DJ and first-class hospitality for all runners including complimentary food (main meal and dessert) and drinks (three alcoholic or soft drinks) - spectators are also encouraged to join the fun and can buy additional hospitality packages online. This really is an evening not to be missed!
This year, after a decade of expansion, we're proud to introduce The Extra Mile: a chance to make an impact way beyond the finish line and contribute to philanthropy in a bigger, better way.
The Extra Mile addresses a unique social challenge in each city, giving runners and spectators alike the opportunity to make a meaningful and actionable difference to healthcare, education, arts or the environment of their communities, all through using the power of sport.
In San Francisco, The Extra Mile has teamed up with sport-for-development organization America Scores to harness the power of sport to address a key challenge truly unique to the city. Find out more about The Extra Mile in the city of San Francisco here.
