Work together. Race together. Celebrate together.
The Bloomberg Square Mile Relay will be returning to São Paulo on Thursday, 22nd August for a third year and is the seventh stop in the global race series that now takes place in 12 cities worldwide! This year 25% of race entry fees will go towards The Extra Mile charity program!
The internationally-renowned annual event will provide the perfect opportunity for Sao Paulo’s top businesses to come together, as teams of ten employees each take it in turn to run the unique one-mile (1.6km) route, all in a bid to be crowned the fastest company in the city.
Every participating company will need 10 employees to complete each team, all of whom will run the stunning one mile (1.6km) course around Parque do Povo.
For 2019 we are excited to add a new award for the Fastest Female Team, so make sure you are in with a chance of winning our brand new award by entering an all-female team.
Last year, over 65 teams from São Paulo’s biggest businesses took part in the relay, and corporations will not only gear up to compete for the coveted relay trophy in 2019, but also to enjoy the fantastic team bonding and networking opportunities at the event.
The race culminates in the famous celebratory after-party where runners and supporters will enjoy food, drinks and live entertainment throughout the evening in the Race Village. This is a fantastic opportunity for organisations to create and build team spirit, boost employee engagement and to promote an active lifestyle in the workplace, this really is an event not to be missed!

The Extra Mile
The Extra Mile helps participants of the Bloomberg Square Mile Relay contribute to their city in a bigger, better way. We are delighted to be working with Instituto Esporte & Educação as The Extra Mile Partner in 2019.
Simply by participating in the race, 25% of your team’s race fee will be donated to The Extra Mile program in Sao Paulo, which will support and promote projects over the next year using the power of sport and physical activity.
The best part is, you get to help decide where funds go by choosing a cause you care about, and running for it. When you complete your personal profile on our website you will choose a cause to run for. Then, on race night, your lap in the Bloomberg Square Mile Relay won’t just be for your team, but also for The Extra Mile cause you selected.
The cause with the quickest average time will win a minimum donation of US$20,000. Funds will be used by The Extra Mile Partner to address the winning cause.
