About The Daily Mile

The aim of The Daily Mile is to improve the physical, social, emotional and mental health and wellbeing of our children – regardless of age, ability or personal circumstances.

The Daily Mile is a social activity, wherein children run, jog, cycle or even scooter – at their own pace – in the fresh air with friends. Children can occasionally walk to catch their breath, if necessary, but should aim to run or jog for the full 15 minutes.

How The Daily Mile Works!

Well Being  It takes place over just 15 minutes, with children averaging a mile each day.

Well Being  Helps to improve fitness and healthy weight.

Well Being   It encourages children to be aware of their health.

Well Being  It’s fully inclusive; every child, whatever their circumstances, age or ability, succeeds at The Daily Mile.

Well Being  Children run outside in the fresh air – and the weather is a benefit, not a barrier.

Well Being  No training is needed for teachers.

Well Being  Children run in their uniforms so no kit or changing time is needed.

Well Being  It’s social, non-competitive and fun.

Well Being  Children return to class ready to learn.

Physically active children and young people perform better academically than their inactive peers and those who are most active benefit the most.
