What is The 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, making them fitter, healthier, and more able to concentrate in the classroom.

Our Ambassador, Eliud Kipchoge

Eliud Kipchoge is the world’s fastest marathon runner! On 12th October in Vienna, Austria, the Kenyan athlete became the first person ever to run a marathon in under two hours when he achieved the super human time of 1:59:40.2.

We’re excited that Eliud is working with The Daily Mile to get even more schools and nurseries signed up around the world. Like Eliud, The Daily Mile Foundation believes “No Human Is Limited” and wants to ensure every child has the opportunity to enjoy being physically active, outside with their friends.

A Word from Elaine

The physical and mental health of our children continues to be of real concern. The problems have crept up on us and are now so serious that immediate action is needed.

 The introduction of The Daily Mile for every child in thousands of schools and nurseries is now building a coherent national approach to the problem at grassroots level.

 Let’s not hesitate.  We should make The Daily Mile part of every childhood and watch as it improves our children’s health and wellbeing now and for the rest of their lives.
