METNS are getting fit with the Daily Mile, we hope that our Daily Mile will improve the physical, emotional and social health and wellbeing of all children – regardless of age or personal circumstances.

“The Daily Mile” is successful because it is simple and free:

  • It takes place over just 15 minutes, with children averaging a mile each day
  • Children run outside in the fresh air – and the weather is a benefit, not a barrier
  • There’s no set up, tidy up, or equipment required
  • Children run in their regular clothes so no kit or changing time is needed
  • It’s social, non-competitive and fun
  • It’s fully inclusive, every child succeeds, whatever their circumstances, age or ability.
