Daily Mile

Daily Mile

The Daily Mile is a fully-inclusive, free and simple initiative which improves the physical and mental health of children. It’s a social activity where the children run or jog, at their own pace, for 15 minutes every day and it improves focus in the classroom.

Children are able to exercise in the fresh air with friends. They can occasionally walk to catch their breath, if necessary, but should aim to run or jog for the full 15 minutes.

The Daily Mile Works!

  • It takes place in 15 minutes, with most children averaging a mile, or more, each day.
  • Children run outside in the fresh air – and the weather is a benefit, not a barrier.
  • There’s no set up, tidy up, or equipment required.
  • No staff training is needed and there is no extra workload for teachers.
  • Children run in their uniforms so no kit or changing time is needed.
  • It’s social, non-competitive and fun.
  • The children return to class ready to learn.
  • It helps to improve fitness and achieve a healthy weight.
  • It encourages children to be aware of their health.
  • It’s fully inclusive: every child, whatever their circumstances, age or ability,
    succeeds at The Daily Mile.
