What is The Daily Mile?

If you haven’t yet heard of or looked into The Daily Mile initiative, we can give a quick explanation. It started in 2012 as a worldwide approach to tackle a decline in children’s physical fitness, involving a simple routine of primary school pupils running or jogging around a running track or circuit for 15 minutes every day. The aim of the programme is to improve the physical, social, emotional and mental health of children, no matter their age, ability or personal circumstances.

There are a number of benefits to helping your own students take part in The Daily Mile:

  • The daily routine is done in 15 minutes, with most children completing a mile in that time
  • It gives your students time in the fresh air
  • Beyond a marked circuit, you don’t need any extra equipment. This means no setting up or tidying up
  • No staff training is needed
  • There is no extra workload for teachers
  • Children can run in their uniforms, so they don’t have to get changed
  • The initiative is social and fun, not a competition
  • It helps to improve fitness and encourages kids to be aware of their own health

Our Mile A Day Track

We are delighted to be able to offer a Mile A Day Circuit as part of our range, giving your pupils the perfect place to burn off energy and take part in The Daily Mile at playtime or during PE. These tracks are available in a wide variety of striking colours that are bound to catch the eye and bring fun into their new fitness routine, and the track is large and open enough that children can walk, run or jog around it with their friends at a pace which suits them.

We know that not every playground is the same size or has the same dimensions, but we will work closely with you to ensure that you get the mile circuit which works best for your available space. Get in touch with us today and we can arrange a site visit so your circuit will be designed and created in a way that’s just right for your playground.

Custom Designs for Your Mile Circuit

If you like the idea of creating a playground marking that suits a theme, or keeps to an already-established colour scheme, we can even help you design a Daily Mile circuit of your own! Bespoke themes for playground markings are a speciality of ours here at Designs & Lines, so if you would prefer animal prints to footprints around your track, or would like the track in your primary school’s colours, we can arrange it.
