The Bloomberg Square Mile Relay will be returning to Shanghai on the 25th October for a fifth year and is the penultimate stop in the global race series that now takes place in 13 cities worldwide. This year 25% of your race entry fees will go towards The Extra Mile charity program!
The internationally-renowned annual event will provide the perfect opportunity for Shanghai’s top businesses to come together, as teams of ten employees each take it in turn to run the unique one-mile (1.6km) route, all in a bid to be crowned the fastest company in the city.
Every participating company will need 10 employees to complete each team, all of whom will run the one mile (1.6km) course around Shanghai Oriental Sports Centre.
For 2019 we are excited to add a new award for the Fastest Female Team, so make sure you are in with a chance of winning our brand new award by entering an all-female team.
Last year, over 70 teams from Shanghai’s biggest businesses took part in the relay, and corporations will not only gear up to compete for the coveted relay trophy in 2019, but also to enjoy the fantastic team bonding and networking opportunities at the event.
The race culminates in the famous celebratory after-party where runners and supporters will enjoy food, drinks and live entertainment throughout the evening in the Race Village. This is a fantastic opportunity for organisations to create and build team spirit, boost employee engagement and to promote an active lifestyle in the workplace, this really is an event not to be missed!

Going The Extra Mile In Shanghai
The Extra Mile helps participants of the Bloomberg Square Mile Relay contribute to their city in a bigger, better way. This year we are delighted to be working with Special Olympics in Shanghai.
Simply by participating in the race, 25% of your team’s race fee will be donated to invest in projects delivered by Special Olympics. The best part is, you get to help choose where those 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 causes to run for, from Education, Health or Happiness. Then, on race night, your lap in the Bloomberg Square Mile Relay won’t just be for your team, but for your Extra Mile cause too.
The cause with the quickest average time will win a minimum donation of US$20,000. Funds will be used to address the winning cause across a year-long project. Find out more about Special Olympics and the causes you can choose here.
