The Daily Mile Commonwealth Challenge is comprised of two connecting initiatives which inspire and enable primary school children to participate in regular running, jogging or walking.
The Commonwealth Challenge Map invites schools on a 100-day virtual journey from Australia (location of the 2018 Commonwealth Games) to Birmingham, via many of the countries that will be visiting our city for the Games. Schools place a sticker on the map for every day that they complete The Daily Mile, learning about the world and collecting prizes as they progress.
In addition to this, home resources have been created to encourage families to participate in the Daily Mile outside of school.
This project harnesses the power of Birmingham 2022 to bring people together and change behaviour for the improvement of the health and wellbeing of people in the West Midlands.
