Welcome to The Daily Mile Foundation's Global website!

The aim of The Daily Mile is to improve the physical, social, emotional and mental health and wellbeing of every person - regardless of age, ability or personal circumstances.



We want every child in the world to have the opportunity to do The Daily Mile in their nursery or primary school.


Fit For Life

We want to provide everyone aged 11+ with a platform to do The Daily Mile in their secondary school, workplace, university, college, and much more.



The Daily Mile Foundation is proudly partnered with Imperial College London (ICL), who Chair our ‘Research Advisory Group’. The Research Advisory Group, or RAG, is a group of academics researching The Daily Mile in a variety of fields, who assist in contributing to our understanding of the initiative.
