One Team. Ten Runners. One Mile Each.
Team entries are not open yet, but the Bloomberg Square Mile Relay, the one-of-a-kind, immersive team-building experience, will be returning to Dubai on Wednesday 7th February 2018, for the first race of the 2018 global series that now takes place in 10 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 around the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) and the iconic Gate Building.
Over 77 of Dubai’s biggest businesses have already taken part in the relay, 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.
The relay culminates with a fantastic celebration in the Race Village, open to all runners and spectators at the DIFC where the night kicks off with music as the sun sets and race results come in. Runners are able to enjoy complimentary hospitality in the Race Village as part of their race entry package (including main meal, dessert and soft drinks), and supporters can purchase additional hospitality packages online should they also want to enjoy the hospitality on offer.
Following the race awards presentation there will be an Official After-Party where runners will receive a complimentary house beverage, with guests also welcome so that everyone can enjoy the party atmosphere – this really is an evening not to be missed!
Set amidst the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC), runners challenge each other for position as they navigate tight turns, sharp bends, and flights of stairs on this unique one mile (1.6km) route, synonymous with the Bloomberg Square Mile Relay. The stunning skyline provides a dramatic backdrop to the race course that challenges returning runners on the start line, but also offers a unique, fun and exciting race for first-time participants.
Check out the route that runners took for the second Bloomberg Square Mile Relay in Dubai earlier this year.
