Coronavirus, an update from Active Cornwall

The Daily Mile

The Daily Mile

The Daily Mile is a great initiative aiming to get people active and outdoors, whilst keeping to lockdown rules and staying within their local area.

From January 18th "England does the Daily Mile #AtHome challenges" will kick off with a series of activities to get everyone moving.

The idea is to help parents get children active at home with some fun and engaging activities to do along the way.

There will also be challenges released with mental health links to keep both body and mind fit and healthy.

The Daily Mile foundation is responsible for overseeing the global roll-out of The Daily Mile initiative. The team behind the programme is small, but passionate and enthusiastic about getting children #FitForLife.

"We already have Daily Mile guidance for schools, and now we've adapted it so you can use it at home and enjoy the same benefits.

"These come from 15 minutes or more of walking, running or jogging in the fresh air - doing it at whatever pace suits you best and wearing what you'll feel most comfortable in."
