The Daily Mile is simple and free – and gets children out of the classroom for 15 minutes every day to run or jog at their own pace with their classmates, making them fitter, healthier and more able to concentrate in the classroom.

Working closely with Public Health Hertfordshire and The Daily Mile Foundation, the Partnership will be responsible for encouraging as many schools as possible in Hertfordshire, to adopt The Daily Mile and support the implementation of local programmes.

With one in four of our school children deemed to be overweight or obese by the time they leave primary school, and with growing issues around the mental wellbeing of young people, The Daily Mile can make a marked and lasting difference to the lives of our young people.
