New 4-star hotel group Amba Hotels has been named as the title sponsor of the inaugural City of London Mile taking place on June 22.

The race, which earlier this year became one of London Athletics’ approved events and boasts 2011 World 1500m silver medalist Hannah England among its supporters, takes participants on a historic route taking in Mansion House, the Bank of England, Guildhall and St. Mary-le-Bow Church, as well as part of the London Olympic Marathon course.

Held for the first time in the year which marks 60 years since Sir Roger Bannister ran the world’s first sub-4 minute Mile, the City of London Mile comprises five events: the Family Mile, Youth Mile, Corporate Mile, International Mile and the City of London Mile which is open to everyone.

“Amba’s sponsorship of the City of London Mile is part of Amba’s ambition and commitment to support and be an active part of London’s cultural and sporting scene,” commented the hotel group’s CEO Belinda Atkins.
