What is The Morning Mile?


What could get a 4th grader to run 600 miles at school in one year? What could get a kindergartener to complete 300 miles? The Morning Mile™ is a proven program geared towards fighting childhood obesity and increasing the physical activity levels of school children in the US and beyond.

The Morning Mile™ is a before-school walking/running program that gives children the chance to start each day in an active way while enjoying fun, music and friends. That’s EVERY CHILD, EVERY DAY. It’s also supported by a wonderful system of rewards, which keeps students highly motivated and frequently congratulated.

Our program guidebook ensures any school can easily reproduce the Morning Mile™; it has already been implemented in many states such as: Florida, Louisiana, New York, Connecticut, Virginia, Georgia, Texas, Missouri, California, Tennessee, Canada and on a US Air Force base near Tokyo, Japan. We have almost 200 schools and camps running with extraordinary success. With participation rates between 65% – 97% at each school, Morning Milers are about to celebrate their two millionth mile run. Yes! 2,000,000 miles!

Providing children the opportunity to exercise each morning not only works to fight childhood obesity, it allows students to expend youthful energy on the field leaving them more likely to excel in academics once the school day begins. Teachers praise their student’s new ability to sit still, focus and learn while parents rave about their child’s sense of pride, accomplishment and dedication to a healthy lifestyle. The kids love how exercise makes them feel, their reward necklaces and socializing with friends. The Morning Mile™ provides an opportunity for 100% of each school’s student body to participate each day of the school year. It is not a “club”. It is not exclusive. It is not just for jocks or kids who can follow complicated choreography. The Morning Mile offers a pressure free and friendly environment, which ensures children of all ages and abilities, can pursue fitness each day of the school year.
