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. 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 well being of young people, The Daily Mile can make a marked and lasting difference to the lives of our young people. The Partnership are responsible for encouraging as many schools as possible in Hertfordshire to adopt The Daily Mile.

The Daily Mile Destinations Campaign – launching in primary schools across Hertfordshire this September!

Travel the Great Wall of China, soak up the spray at Niagara Falls or stand in awe as the sun rises over the pyramids of Giza…wherever you begin, let The Daily Mile Destinations campaign help you to keep pupils fit, focused and flourishing. Aiming to achieve 100 days of The Daily Mile, classes are tasked with completing 3-5 days of The Daily Mile a week with each Daily Mile day moving them closer towards achieving new Daily Mile Destinations Certificates and Daily Mile Destination Stickers.
