Congratulations to everyone who took on and completed the inaugural Bloomberg Square Mile Relay in Sydney, which saw JP 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.
Competing fiercely for first place in the final laps were Macquarie coming in just behind by eight seconds in a time of 1:02:20. Close behind in third place were Optiver Pty Ltd Men finishing in 1:04:53.
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.
Set amidst the unique urban setting of Darling Harbour runners will set off from Tumbalong Park and challenge each other for position as they twist and turn their way through the exciting, unique one-mile course that will take participants around the harbour, navigating staircases, along the bridge, and into the surrounding pathways before returning back to the Race Village.
