A MILE A DAY…

Runner's World (UK) - - Human Race -

Last year, 10-11year-olds at an East London school were mon­i­tored for 15 weeks while they par­tic­i­pated in The Daily Mile. Here’s how they fared...

60%

of kids deemed un­fit at the start of the study were clas­si­fied as fit by the end.

92%

achieved the na­tional av­er­age in read­ing in SATS tests, 25 per cent higher than pre­dicted by in­de­pen­dent as­ses­sors.

96%

achieved the score in maths, also 25 per cent higher than ex­pected.

88%

achieved the av­er­age in writ­ing, ex­ceed­ing ex­pec­ta­tions by 17 per cent. ‘I am con­vinced re­sults like th­ese will be repli­cated all over,’ says Wyl­lie.
