Active Essex Daily Mile

Essex Schools get involved in the Daily Mile

The Daily Mile kicked off this week, with the first classes running and walking on Wednesday 24th April. Using a GPS to double-check, we measured the distance around the netball court. 


Pacing Ourselves  

Measuring our Mile

To cover a mile in fifteen minutes, we would have to average one lap every 50 seconds. It is possible to do this with a fast walk. Some of us ran all the way, some of us walked most of the way, while others mixed running and walking. The important thing was that we were all exercising for fifteen minutes. The netball court is a rectangle 30 metres long by 15 metres wide, giving it a perimeter of 90 metres. Because there are 1609 metres in a mile, it would take 17.9 laps of the netball court to travel a mile. We rounded this up to eighteen laps.
