The Daily Mile (TDM) is a free and simple initiative that aims to increase the physical activity levels of school children to help them access the physical health, mental health and wellbeing benefits every day. Download our report into the impact of the Essex Daily Mile!
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.
There’s no teacher training, set up, tidy up, or equipment required.
It’s fully inclusive; every child, whatever their circumstances, age or ability, succeeds at The Daily Mile!
