Following the hugely successful inaugural race in March 2016, the Bloomberg Square Mile Relay returns to Sydney on Wednesday 15th March 2017 for a second year.
This annual corporate event, featuring a unique route around Darling Harbour, is the second leg of a global race series which includes sell-out races in Dubai, New York, London, Shanghai, Singapore and Hong Kong.
The first Bloomberg Square Mile Relay in Sydney saw J.P. Morgan take the coveted title in a time of 1:02:12, outrunning 50 other teams to win a prize of $10,000 to donate to their nominated charity, the Indigenous Marathon Foundation.

Individually, the fastest runner Liam Rowe, of JP Morgan, completed the one-mile route in a quick 5 minutes and 33 seconds, setting the course record which will become the benchmark for all future runners of the annual Bloomberg Square Mile Relay Sydney.
