The race for the Fastest Firm of 2023 continues…
08 September 2023 at 11:27AM
With the completion of both San Francisco and São Paulo relays, and London around the corner, it sure has been a hectic couple of months.
In July we took the race back to San Francisco after four years away from Pier 27. With a vibrant atmosphere and fierce competition, it was Dodge & Cox who retained their top spot from 2019 in a speedy 58:34.6 – the only team in their city to finish under an hour! It was great to be back at Pier 27 after four long years away. We missed the pier-side atmosphere and so did our runners. Check out what some of the San Francisco participants had to say about why they took part in the Bloomberg Square Mile Relay.
August 17th then saw another team retain its title, as the baton was handed to São Paulo and reigning champions Itaú Unibanco came in at 56:24.5 – they shaved a minute off last year’s time and truly earned the title of Fastest Firm in the city. Impressive stuff! See what went down by watching the Bloomberg Square Mile Relay São Paulo highlights.
Both of these incredible times have shaken up things on the 2023 relay leaderboard – with Tokyo and Mitsubishi UFJ Trust Bank losing their top spot. With another four confirmed cities to race, how will the leaderboard look by the end of 2023!?
Next up to race is London – our flagship event where it all started many years ago. London, we hope you’re ready to step up to the starting line, as this race promises to be one for the ages. Just in case you need a reminder of what happened last year, check out the 2022 London highlights and get ready for 13th September – and while you’re at it, find out from a few of last year’s runners what they thought of the race immediately after they’d finished!
