Achieving The Daily Mile Challenge With Our Resin Bound Rubber Tracks & Pathways

In 2012 Elaine Wyllie a former teacher developed the Daily Mile Challenge which is taking UK schools by storm creating a safe environment where children can exercise daily in the fresh open air. The Daily Mile has become a registered charity which helps and inspires schools to get children running or walking a mile a day. The benefits of  exercising on a daily basis are said to improve the child’s behaviour, fitness levels, well-being and only takes 15 minutes out of the school day. To support the core principles of the Daily Mile we have developed three types of pathway constructions to create all weather tracks which provide an environment in which children can achieve their daily exercise challenge.

All weather exercise paths are becoming more and more popular as schools aim to provide an all-weather surface for their children to take up the Governments exercise challenge.  Find out more on our Blog post . The idea is fun and simple for all schools to participate … every day during school time, thousands of children across the UK are encouraged to run , jog or walk a mile.

 

Nationwide school Business Managers are committing to activity challenge. Our paths encourage thousands of primary and secondary school children to walk or run a mile a day. The aim of this initiative is to hit childhood obesity head on and assist with improving physical and mental health, along with creating a sense of wellbeing … all of which has been shown to increase everyone’s concentration and focus alongside a healthy diet.

 

The Government has tasked schools to tackle childhood obesity and they are not expecting schools to fund this alone as there is a way to finance this initiative through the Sports Premium.  Schools with more than 17 pupils can receive £16,000 + £10 for every pupil.
