Daily Mile Tracks

The Daily Mile is an initiative to encourage school children to walk, run or jog one mile each day. This can be accomplished in usual school wear, so no kit or changing time is needed. The speed of the mile is whatever the children and the teachers can manage, and has no barriers in terms of the children’s ages or abilities. The Daily Mile is an easy way to improve the fitness, health and concentration in pupils. It has already shown an increase in student attention in class and an improvement in physical fitness, ability, and emotional responses.

A dedicated school all-weather Daily Mile Track can make your school's Daily Mile more engaging, enjoyable and safer than simply running around a field.  An impact absorbing or soft surface can simulate an athletics track and help prevent any injury or stress on joints. The more fun and simple to perform the more likely the Daily Mile is likely to continue to benefit all involved.

The surfaces which can be employed include:

Rubber Mulch Track

Bonded rubber mulch is an excellent flooring for Daily Mile tracks; soft underfoot with good slip resistant properties.

A bonded rubber mulch system is made from rubber bark which is bonded together with a polyurethane resin, making a good impact absorbent surface. Rubber mulch is produced from recycled tyres which are shredded into a bark chippings shape and dyed to offer a range of colours. The surface is strong and durable.

Rubber mulch is a non-slip, porous impact absorbing system which can be installed onto most existing surfaces. Bonded rubber mulch drains freely and requires no base works, save a weed prevention geotextile sheeting, which makes it an economical solution to providing a Daily Mile Track.

Wet Pour Rubber

Wet Pour Rubber is an impact absorbing rubber surface most commonly used in children’s playgrounds. Unlike bonded rubber mulch it does require a stone base which can make it a more expensive option but the installation of a stone base can make the track more even and uniform should that be required.  Wet pour rubber surfaces can have graphics, designs and games incorporated into it to add to the appeal and fun of the Daily Mile Track.

Artificial Grass

Artificial grass provides a natural looking and economical Daily Mile Track that can blend in with the natural school surroundings.  Similar to wet pour rubber: games, graphics and designs can be incorporated into the system.  Artificial grass surfaces are durable and soft underfoot and are available in a number of pile heights and thicknesses to suit all requirements.

5/5 Stars Yell.com

Andy at SSP Canterbury organised works at our Nursery in Dover which included artificial grass and wet pour playground surface, they were totally professional and nothing was too much trouble. The end result was fantastic and has really changed the outside look. I have no hesitation in recommending this company, they are excellent value for money.
