Scotland: The Daily Mile Nation

Scotland’s Deputy First Minister John Swinney visits the first school to take up The Daily Mile, to welcome the Queen’s Baton Relay and show support for this world-leading initiative.

The Queen’s Baton Relay today visited St Ninians Primary School in Scotland – the school where in 2012 headteacher Elaine Wyllie founded the internationally-acclaimed children’s health and wellbeing initiative, The Daily Mile.

Around 1,000 Scottish primary and nursery schools already take part in The Daily Mile, which encourages children to walk, jog or run for 15 minutes every day.
