The Daily Mile at Home

We would like to introduce all families across the UK to The #DailyMileAtHome.  It’s an easy and fun way to keep fit and maintain good health and wellbeing for you and your children.

Read on below

Instructions from the UK government are very clear – they are allowing us to take exercise outdoors, once a day, as long as we can keep a safe distance from others. Further government guidance on this can be found below.

We all need to try to be physically active and The Daily Mile at Home can help almost everyone to do this. We believe that it will be useful for children, parents and carers in helping them to look after their physical and mental health.

We already have Daily Mile guidance for schools, and now we’ve adapted it so you can use it at home and enjoy the same benefits. These come from 15 minutes or more of walking, running or jogging in the fresh air – doing it at whatever pace suits you best and wearing what you’ll feel most comfortable in.

We’d love to see you doing The Daily Mile, so be sure to post on social media using #DailyMileAtHome.
