DAILY MILE TRACKS – THE MILE A DAY CHALLENGE
HOME / MILE A DAY

DAILY MILE TRACK FOR SCHOOLS
HELPING ALL CHILDREN BENEFIT FROM 15 MINUTES OF PHYSICAL ACTIVITY EVERY DAY

The Edspace Daily Mile Track has been designed to provide an exercise facility that is intended to be used every day by the whole school.

The daily mile track is constructed using a polyurethane bound rubber chip laid to a depth of 50mm over a compacted stone sub-base and geo-textile membrane. This produces a porous, resilient surface normally installed around the perimeter of an existing playing field. Existing pathways or playgrounds can be incorporated into the track route to extend the distance without increasing the installation cost. The track length is normally set to ensure that an exact number of completed laps are equal to the challenge distance of 1 mile.

Deciding on the track route is quite a simple process and we use satellite technology to produce suggested routes and budget costing’s which are completely free of charge.

If you are considering the benefits of an all-weather daily track mile facility, or would like to request a remote survey just complete our remote survey request form here or request a call back using the form below, alternatively contact us here providing the school name, address and postcode and we will provide a suggested route plan and fixed price installation quote.

The mile a day track is doing so much to improve children’s fitness, behavior and concentration in lessons that schools across the UK are getting pupils up from their desks and taking the challenge on a daily basis.

Its fantastic to see initiatives like the daily mile being established, showing real leadership from the education sector to improve children’s fitness levels, their cognitive behaviour and make a real difference to schools, teachers, parents and young people’s lives. We know sitting still kills; not sitting still helps children build skills that will stay with them for life
