About Square Mile Sport
Square Mile Sport (SMS) is dedicated to improving the health and well-being of all through shared memorable experiences that leave lasting positive social impact. Through its flagship global corporate event series, the Bloomberg Square Mile Relay, and its uniquely developed Bloomberg Square Mile Virtual Club, Square Mile Sport uses the power of exercise and social development to empower individuals, build teams and connect businesses in cities all across the world.
SMS is the owner and operator of the Bloomberg Square Mile Relay (BSMR), a global series of 12 events that brings corporate communities on to the streets for an immersive, collaborative and competitive experience right in the heart of the world’s largest financial districts including London, Singapore, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Beijing, Dubai, Sydney, New York, Tokyo, San Francisco, Sao Paulo, and Mumbai. With over 14,000 participants from 900+ companies each year, our aim is to connect businesses in the most engaging experiences that deliver on our commitment to improving wellbeing and improving local communities.
In 2020, in response to the pandemic, we launched our free-to-access Bloomberg Square Mile Virtual Club (BSMVC), which has over 4,000 members drawn from over 300 prestigious global companies, primarily in the Financial Services sector. Our aim was to be able to continue offering our community experiences to stay connected, engaged and also motivated to be active during the difficult and isolated times caused by the pandemic. Now with over 15 different activity types including running, cycling, yoga and meditation, members can earn points for themselves and their company by undertaking these activities, to move up city and global ranking leader boards, as well as unlock donations to go to a charity partner in their city as part of The Extra Mile charity programme.
Our mission is to improve health and well-being through shared meaningful experiences that leave lasting positive social impact.
We are now at an extremely exciting phase of being able to once again start planning for the return of live events later this year following postponement during the COVID pandemic, as well as continuing to grow and develop our Virtual Club offering to run alongside our live event experiences, which is accelerating the growth of our team.
