The Daily Mile At Home
The Daily Mile At Home Family Challenges
The Daily Mile at home experience is up and running! Let’s keep moving with these fun, healthy Daily Mile challenges from May 11 thru July 2. Remember to stay safe and keep others healthy by following your local COVID guidelines.
What is The Daily Mile At Home?
The US is starting to see the first signs of returning to a “new normal” after government officials have warned us to “stay home, stay safe” during the coronavirus pandemic. Health officials still remind our communities to continue practicing safe social distancing, however, the country is beginning to see people return to the great outdoors to complete their Daily Mile.
We’re working with our fantastic partners at London Marathon Events to create fun, educational, family-friendly challenges you can do at home to stay active and healthy! Challenges will run from May 11 through July 2.
