Work together. Race together. Celebrate together.
The Bloomberg Square Mile Relay is returning to Tokyo for a second year in 2018.
This is not your ordinary running race. Each corporate team has 10 runners, all of whom will run the stunning one-mile looped course around the heart of the financial district in a bid to become the ‘fastest firm in the city’.
Last year, over 50 teams from Tokyo’s biggest businesses took part and corporations will not only gear up to compete for the coveted relay trophy in 2018, but also to enjoy the fantastic team bonding and networking opportunities at the event with hospitality and after-party all included. Team entries will be open shortly, but you can register your interest today!
Further details to be announced soon.
This year, we are proud to introduce The Extra Mile: a chance to make an impact way beyond the finish line and contribute to philanthropy in a bigger, better way.
The Extra Mile is a community-led initiative by Bloomberg Square Mile Relay, which addresses a unique social challenge in each city where the race is run. The Extra Mile gives runners and spectators alike the opportunity to make a meaningful and actionable difference in their communities, all through using the power of sport.
Via online voting, residents in each of the 11 cities can select an initiative that uses sport to address a local issue they feel passionate about. Then, the Square Mile Relay community of runners and spectators support the chosen project in a number of ways:
In Tokyo, The Extra Mile has teamed up with renowned sport-for-development organisation Coaches Across Continents and local charity United Sports Foundation to harness the power of sport to address a key challenge truly unique to the city.
VOTING IS NOW OPEN.

Once the community votes, the relay community will have a change to volunteer in an interactive and exciting activity that addresses the winning challenge and kicks off the yearlong support of The Extra Mile in Tokyo.
We encourage your team to show your Bloomberg Square Mile Relay pride and go beyond race night to give back to your own community. With the collective strength of our global races – from those who run in them, to those who cheer them on – we can change our communities.
Not only do we run these cities – we care about them too.
