Work together. Race together. Celebrate together.
The Bloomberg Square Mile Relay heads to New York for the fourth time on Thursday May 2nd.
This internationally-renowned annual event will provide the perfect opportunity for the city's top businesses to come together, as teams of ten employees each take turns to run the unique one-mile (1.6km) route, all in a bid to be crowned the fastest company in the city.
Hundreds of New York'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 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 in advance once available. This really is an evening not to be missed!
YOUR LAP. YOUR CAUSE. YOUR IMPACT.
We are committed to making a difference beyond the finish line by contributing to a cause that’s important in your city. Through The Extra Mile, you can choose which cause our partner charity, Magic Bus, will support, using the power of sport to address social challenges in your city. The faster you run, the better the chance your cause has of receiving the donation. The Extra Mile charity partner and causes will be revealed shortly.
How fast can #WeRunThisCity?
Runners will race each other for position as they navigate tight turns and sharp bends on a unique one-mile (1.6km) route, synonymous with the Bloomberg Square Mile Relay. The New York skyline will provide a dramatic backdrop to a route that will not only challenge 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 third Bloomberg Square Mile Relay in New York last year.
