The Daily Mile

What is The Daily Mile?

‘In a nutshell, it's something that you, your family, friends and colleagues should be doing!'

The Daily Mile™ is simple and free. We want to get everyone in Cornwall fit for life by encouraging them to walk briskly for at least 15 minutes every day. The Daily Mile Fit For Life can take place anywhere e.g. workplaces, homes, retirement homes, doctor's surgeries, pharmacies, colleges, universities.

It can be a standalone activity or incorporated into everyday tasks such as walking the kids to school, getting off the bus a couple of stops early - the list is endless! It is a physical activity which promotes social, emotional and mental health and well being, as well as fitness.

It takes place outside in the fresh air during the day at a time that fits into the person's life. No special kit or equipment is required.

We shall be updating our website soon with a starter pack to get you going but in the meantime please download these A5 flyers for employers  and employees  and contact us for more information.

“When we think of young people’s health, we think of schools being a key space for engagement, for adults the workplace is a similar space”- Dr Justin Varney, Public Health England Programme Lead for Health and Work.

Dame Carol Black,

"It is fantastic to see Cornwall and Isles of Scilly championing the health and work agenda and I look forward to seeing the Workplace Award act as a catalyst for further change in the county. Good health is good business and I encourage all employers that are serious about the agenda to apply for this confirmation of best practice." Dame Carol Black, National Director for Health and Work.
