Congratulations to everyone who took on and completed the 10th anniversary of the Bloomberg Square Mile Relay London 2016, which saw 115 teams from London’s biggest businesses take to the start line only a few hours after the running of the Bloomberg Square Mile Relay in Shanghai.
Barclays took the honour of ‘Fastest Firm in the City’ for the sixth time, in a rapid 53:05, and donated the prize of £5,000 to their nominated charity, Richard House Children's Hospice.
Competing fiercely for first place were J.P. Morgan and Credit Suisse coming in just behind Barclays in a time of 54:31 and 55:46 respectively. Individually, the fastest runner Andrew Lawrence, from Team Barclays, completed the one-mile route in an incredible time of 4:48.
Nike UK & Ireland were the inaugural winners of the Fastest Mixed Team award, with a time of 58:22 and won a team Biomechanical Analysis session courtesy of race Fitness Partner Technogym.
The Bloomberg Square Mile Relay takes place in seven cities across the world, including London, Shanghai, Singapore, Hong Kong, Dubai, Sydney and New York, with further cities to be added in 2017. The baton is now being handed to Singapore who race on 27th October, so challenge your international counterparts and see who can run their city the fastest!
The Bloomberg Square Mile Relay course is set to not only challenge the returning runners on the startline, but also offer a unique, fun and exciting route for first-time participants. Runners will have to twist and turn their way around the one-mile route, racing towards the finish line in the Guildhall Yard before handing on the baton to their teammate.
AT THE BLOOMBERG SQUARE MILE RELAY, THE FINISH LINE DOES NOT MEAN THE END.
The relay culminates in a post-race party, open to all runners and spectators in the Guildhall Yard, where a live DJ will kick off the night as the sun sets and race results come in.
All runners will receive hospitality as part of their entry, but please note that additional hospitality for supporters will not be available to purchase in the Race Village.
