Miles ahead: school that fired starting gun on running revolution

The Guardian – Nicola Slawson

For three-and-a-half years, all pupils at St Ninians primary have walked or run a mile each day…The daily mile has done so much to improve these children’s fitness, behaviour and concentration in lessons that scores of nursery and primary schools across Britain are following suit and getting pupils to get up from their desks and take 15 minutes to walk or run round the school or local park.”(more)
