The Daily Mile TM

The Daily Mile is a free activity available to all schools which sees children run or jog, at their own pace, for 15 minutes a day in order to improve their physical, social, emotional and mental health.

Each child goes at their own pace – the focus isn’t on the distance of a mile, but participating in 15 minutes of daily physical activity.

There is no staff training or workload – children don’t need to change, they wear their normal school day attire.

Children return to the classroom energised and more able to concentrate making them more efficient learners.
