Daily Mile Tracks for Schools

All-weather Daily Mile Tracks for Schools are designed to provide a fun way to get pupils outdoors and active

Our popular Daily Mile Tracks for schools have helped school children across the UK to improve their fitness levels a little each day while enjoying the fresh air and social time with their classmates.

We know that increasing the amount of physical education for pupils can prove to be a challenge for schools, but with a dedicated all-weather Daily Mile Track, children are more likely to engage with the activity – and improve their concentration levels when back inside the classroom.

Daily Mile Track Surfaces

Our Daily Mile Tracks for schools, are compliant with Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems (SUDS) regulations. They feature a 50mm polyurethane-bound rubber granule, providing a cushioned surface that absorbs impact, reducing the risk of injuries to pupils.

The high-quality materials we specify are not only durable but also easy to maintain, and are designed to withstand daily use by the whole school.

Choose from our range of surfaces, including standard black or coloured rubber options and an artificial grass alternative.

Each surface is expertly installed on a compacted stone sub-base, seamlessly integrating with the surrounding terrain. We’ve also incorporated crossing points to allow for ground maintenance vehicles to cross without any damage to the track surface.

Our surfaces are non-slip and porous, ensuring safety even during wet conditions.

At Edspace, our design team creates a route plan that complements your unique setting and field-based activities. We can seamlessly incorporate existing footpaths and playgrounds into the track layout to increase distance without adding extra installation costs.

Our route lengths are calculated to ensure that a specific number of laps equals the target distance of 1 mile.

The coloured lanes can make the activity more visually appealing and exciting for children. It adds an element of fun and variety to the daily mile routine, making it more enjoyable for children to participate. Multiple lanes allow for friendly competition. Children can challenge themselves to improve their sprinting speed and compete with their peers, fostering a sense of motivation and achievement. Incorporating a multi-lane coloured sprint straight into a primary school's daily mile track promotes physical fitness, social interaction, skill development, and overall well-being among pupils. It adds excitement and variety as well as instilling healthy habits from a young age.
