The Bloomberg Square Mile Relay returns to Shanghai for a third successful year in 2017, against the dramatic backdrop of Lujiazui’s skyscrapers and alongside the Huangpu River. Entries are not yet open, but you can still register your interest!
Set amidst the dramatic setting of the skyscrapers of Lujiazui and alongside the Huangpu River, runners will compete along a unique, one-mile (1.6km) course taking participants around Harbour City before passing the baton to their teammate. Here is the course the runners took in 2016!

The Bloomberg Square Mile Relay “Extra Mile” programme launched in 2017 and was a new initiative to help fund local projects in each city where the race is held and to create a volunteering day for all race participants and Bloomberg employees. This programme reinforces Bloomberg Square Mile Relay's commitment to giving back to the communities where each race takes place, and fulfils the desire to leave a legacy in each city.
The collective effort of 7500+ runners across 10 cites will positively impact our global community of race cities, reinforcing Bloomberg's long standing commitment to strengthening and improving lives in the communities were we live and work.
