With schools closed due to COVID-19 and the summer, we would like to introduce all families across the UAE to The #DailyMileAtHome.
It’s an easy and fun way to keep fit and maintain good health and well-being for you and your children – which is more important now than ever before.
What is The Daily Mile?
When schools are open, The Daily Mile involves children jogging or running for 15 minutes, at their own pace, every school day.
Younger children run on average one mile in 15 minutes hence the name: ‘The Daily Mile’.
It’s free and simple to do. And UAE studies prove The Daily Mile makes children fitter, healthier, happier and more focused in the classroom.
The Daily Mile UAE is in partnership with ADNOC and supported by the Ministry of Education.
Core Principles of The Daily Mile
The Daily Mile has 10 fundamental principles which, when applied correctly, allow children to reap the full benefits of daily physical activity.
