The Daily Mile
The Daily Mile – Can you run a marathon?
The Daily Mile is open for all children from Year 3 to Year 6 to run independently (or with a parent if they prefer) from 8:15am. Reception, Year 1 & Year 2 children are welcome to join in but must bring an adult with them to run alongside. Children taking part MUST have started their run by 8:30am and they will be given bibs by the Sports Crew to show they are involved. They only need trainers and are welcome to run in their school uniform.
The course begins by Big Bob outside the Y6 classrooms and goes around the KS2 playground, the field, the KS1 playground to the Reception entrance gate and back to Big Bob where the children will receive a token to show they have done one lap. They need to do this all over again to get their mile tick. Children then have to find their record card where they collect daily stamps; children who manage to run 13 and then 26 miles will be rewarded with certificates – easy!
Children are encouraged to run/jog the whole course rather than walking any of it and it should take between 10 – 20 minutes depending on how speedy they (or you) are! Good luck!
