Daily Mile in Early Years Settings

In partnership with London Marathon Events, Newham’s Sports & Leisure Team and Early Start Group want to inspire children in Newham to be active and are encouraging early years settings to sign up to take part in The Daily Mile. The Daily Mile is a simple initiative – children can run, jog or toddle at their own pace for 15 minutes, 3-5 times a week. The Daily Mile takes place outdoors and any route can be used, around your setting’s outdoor space, a local park or other safe space for children to move. You can also encourage families to take part at home too!

How to Get Started:
Find out more in the ‘Starting The Daily Mile in your Early Years Setting’ document (PDF).

  • By signing up today you’ll be part of our pilot group and have the opportunity to shape the development of The Daily Mile for early years settings across the UK.
