The Daily Mile


Here are some resources that have been provided by The Daily Mile.

Here are a few words from the creator Elaine Wyllie

"The Daily Mile has a simple aim – to help children get fit by running or walking for 15 minutes a day in school or nursery. The Daily Mile began with a one month trial and (overnight) the results were startling. While many children could not initially manage the one-mile run, within four weeks almost everyone was able to and just as importantly, the children enjoyed it!

By September 2012, the whole school was running for 15 minutes each day and not one of our 57 Primary 1 children was deemed overweight by the school nurse. Attention levels and behaviour in class improved and parents said that their children are fitter, more active and alert. I was overwhelmed by the level of support that we received from parents."
