Congratulations to all 1050 runners that took on and completed the fourth edition of the Bloomberg Square Mile Relay in New York!
By taking part in the race, our runners went The Extra Mile for 9/11 Memorial & Museum - The Extra Mile Partner of the New York event. 25% of their team entry fees, which equated to $35,572 has been donated to help fund a year-round project based on the winning cause - Education!
105 teams from New York's biggest businesses took to the start line in the sold out-event but it was defending champions Citi that retained their title, completing their 10 laps of the one-mile route in a time of 53:01 to lift the coveted trophy and once again become the ‘fastest firm in the city’!
Competing fiercely for top spot were Macquarie and Barclays Credit coming in just behind Citi in a time of 53:11 and 54:41 respectively.
The winners of the inaugural 'Fastest Female Team' award in New York was Bloomberg in a time of 1:10:24.
Also victorious on the night was Morgan Stanley SPG who beat 30 other mixed teams to walk away as the winners of the 'Fastest Mixed Team' award with a time of 58:41 and individually, the fastest runner on the night was Jonah Hanig from Macquarie, completing the one-mile route in an incredible time of 4:53.
This year the Bloomberg Square Mile Relay will take place in 12 cities across the world, including, Dubai, Mumbai, Sydney, New York, Tokyo, San Francisco, Paris, London, Shanghai, São Paulo, Singapore and Hong Kong! The baton is now handed to Tokyo on 23rd May for the fifth race of the 2019 series!

New York - The Extra Mile
When you run with purpose, you run The Extra Mile – our unique program that makes a tangible social difference to your city, which will last long after the teams cross the finish line.
Simply by participating in the race, a percentage of your team’s race fee will be donated to The Extra Mile program in Sydney, which will support and promote projects over the next year using the power of sport and physical activity. The best part is, you get to help decide where funds go by choosing a cause you care about and running for it. When you complete your personal profile on our website you will choose one of three cause to run for. Then, on race night, your lap in the Bloomberg Square Mile Relay won’t just be for your team, but also for The Extra Mile cause you selected.
The cause with the quickest average time from all our runners will win the donation, a minimum of US$20,000, which our partner charity will use to address the winning cause across a year-long project. In 2019 9/11 Memorial and Museum received a donation of $35,572 to deliver a year-long programme on the issue of Education. More information on the charity partner and the chosen causes will be announced shortly.
