Showforce has been working with Benchmark Sport providing experienced crew to assist the setup of the Square Mile Relay for almost a decade. Located in the heart of London’s financial district, the twelfth edition of the Bloomberg Square Mile Relay saw 1200 runners from 120 of London’s largest companies take to the race course to find the ‘fastest firm in the city’! Teams included 10 runners, each completing the one-mile route around central London in the fastest possible time.
With a good understanding of the job at hand, the crew were able to hit the ground running and assisted the team at Benchmark Sport. This included deploying lightweight barriers around the mile long course and ensuring the branding is fixed to the barriers as they go. The six crew were onsite just for one day on the 27th September. Once the event ended, two of the crew stayed until midnight to complete the derig.
This year it was Barclays that took home the trophy for the 7th time, with an extraordinary time of 52:41.
