Daily Mile

Daily Mile

The aim of the Daily Mile is to improve the physical, emotional and social health and well being of our children. Getting children active at a young age is key to setting them up for a healthy lifestyle. The Daily Mile is so simple. There’s no set up, tidy up, or equipment required. Children simply run outside in the fresh air. It’s fully inclusive; every child, whatever their circumstances, age or ability, succeeds at The Daily Mile.

 

The Daily Mile Works!

The Daily Mile is successful because it is simple and free:

   

  1.     It takes place over just 15 minutes, with children averaging a mile each day.
  2.  Children run outside in the fresh air – and the weather is a benefit, not a barrier.
  3.  There’s no set up, tidy up, or equipment required.
  4. Children run in their uniforms so no kit or changing time is needed.
  5.  It’s social, non-competitive and fun.
  6.  It’s fully inclusive; every child, whatever their circumstances, age or ability, succeeds at The Daily Mile.
