The Daily Mile is simple and free and gets children out of the classroom for fifteen minutes every day to run or jog, at their own pace, with their classmates, when the teacher chooses, making them fitter, healthier, and more able to concentrate in the classroom.

The Daily Mile always happens outdoors and, while social distancing restrictions are in place, can help schools to keep children active and improve their health and wellbeing:
Travel the Great Wall of China, soak up the spray of Niagara Falls, stand in awe as the sun rises over the Pyramids of Giza and visit Chile’s Easter Island…Whatever your journey looks like this year, let The Daily Mile Destinations help you along the way, keeping your pupils fit, focused and flourishing – the journey is in your hands!
