One Team. Ten Runners. One Mile Each.
Team entries are not open yet, but this one-of-a-kind, immersive team-building experience will be returning to Sydney on Thursday 4th April 2019, for the second race of the 2019 global series that now takes place in 12 cities worldwide!
This is not your ordinary running race – each participating company will need 10 employees to form a team, all of whom will run the stunning one mile (1.6km) course around Barangaroo Reserve.
Over 100 of Sydney’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 Barangaroo Resere 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 a unique and reinvented urban setting, runners will set off from Barangaroo Reserve and challenge each other for position as they twist and turn their way through the exciting, unique one-mile course taking participants through the park, around the western waterfront of Sydney’s CBD and into the surrounding pathways before returning back to the Race Village. Check out the route that runners took for the third Bloomberg Square Mile Relay in Sydney earlier this year.
New South Wales 2000,
After a decade of expansion, Bloomberg Square Mile Relay is now in 11 of the world’s most vibrant cities. 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. It gives runners and spectators alike the opportunity to make a meaningful and actionable difference to public health, education, arts or the environment of their communities, all through using the power of sport.
Via online voting, residents in each of the 11 cities select an initiative that uses sport to address a local issue they are passionate about. Then, the Square Mile Relay community of runners and spectators support the chosen project in a number of ways:
• Funding - a portion of each team's entry fee is donated to the designated project
• Service - runners and race fans have the opportunity to give back through service hours prior to race day as well as throughout the year
• Celebration - on race night, we highlight the impact made and celebrate as one team
We encourage your teams to go beyond race night in giving 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.
