Work Together. Race Together. Celebrate Together.
Team entries are not yet open, but the Bloomberg Square Mile Relay, will be returning to Hong Kong on Thursday 8th November, for a fifth 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 at Edinburgh Place.
Hong Kong’s biggest businesses took part in the city's fourth 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.
This is not your ordinary running race – each corporate team has 10 runners, all of whom will run our unique one-mile route in relay style, starting and finishing from the Race Village. All runners will receive first class hospitality, including complimentary food and drinks, whilst celebrating in the famous After-Party with live music from a top DJ. Spectators are also encouraged to join the fun and can buy additional hospitality packages. This is an evening not to be missed!
One team. Ten runners. One mile each.
