Square Mile Sport in conjunction with Bloomberg, has announced the launch of the Bloomberg Square Mile Relay Sydney. To be held in Darling Harbour on Wednesday 16 March, the event joins the established global races in London, Singapore, Hong Kong, Dubai and Shanghai.
Taking place in the redeveloped Tumbalong Park, the Bloomberg Square Mile Relay will differ from other local running events with participants from corporate organisations across the city challenging one another for pole position, as they weave their way through the onemile (1.6km) Darling Harbour closed route. The McGrath Foundation has been named as the official charity partner for the event.
Emily Gordon, Head of Bloomberg Australia said: ‘Bloomberg is proud to bring the Square Mile Relay to Sydney. The race embodies collaboration and speed in business and it’s going to be great to see so many of our customers, employees and industry peers running alongside each other for their chosen charities.’
Each team will be made up of 10 runners, each having to complete the one-mile (1.6km) course before handing the baton to their team mate. The team achieving the fastest cumulative time for 10 onemile laps will be crowned champions of the inaugural Bloomberg Square Mile Relay Sydney and will walk away with $10,000 for the charity of their choice.
The race will culminate in a celebratory after-race party, where live music will kick off the evening as the sun sets and the race results are delivered. As part of race entry, runners will receive food, drinks and live entertainment throughout the evening, with supporters also invited to attend.
