What we do

The Daily Mile is a transformative initiative where children run, wheel or walk for fifteen minutes within the school day. Inclusivity and accessibility have always been at the heart of The Daily Mile – getting young people involved regardless of age, ability or personal circumstance.
Research shows that The Daily Mile improves physical and mental health and wellbeing, attention, focus and concentration in the classroom. 19,900 schools and early years settings across the world are taking part! The Daily Mile is an opportunity for schools to embed further physical activity in their day in a way that can promote long term behavioural changes in children! It was created by a teacher and has the full support of educators.
