Before you enter The #MyMiles Schools Challenge
The #MyMiles Schools Challenge is encouraging young people to get active! The challenge is designed to shine a spotlight on the commitment, dedication and sacrifice shown by talented young athletes as they pursue their sporting ambitions. Pupils are asked to complete a minimum of one mile in SportsAid Week, which takes place from 23-29 September, and donate £1 to the charity.
On average, a SportsAid athlete covers around 40 miles under their own steam in training every week. You can inspire pupils, while reinforcing the importance of mental wellbeing and leading a fit and healthy lifestyle, with the stories and achievements of young sporting role models across the country. So what are you waiting for?! Register for the #MyMiles Schools Challenge today!

How you choose to support the #MyMiles Schools Challenge is entirely up to you! It could be in a PE lesson, at lunchtime or during an after school activity. Please spread the word to fellow schools to encourage their involvement.
About The #MyMiles Schools Challenge
SportsAid has linked up with Race Nation to provide an online platform for supporters to join the #MyMiles Schools Challenge! You can sign up today to receive further information about the challenge and start planning your school's activity. There will be a dedicated #MyMiles Schools Day on Tuesday 24 September, but if that doesn't work for you, select any date during SportsAid Week.
You can run an assembly - in advance of your planned activity - about the history of British sport, and the role SportsAid has played within this, to give pupils a clear understanding as to the athletes they’re supporting. There will be a number of surprise visits made to schools by SportsAid athletes, as well as competitions for the most miles covered, best photos and the most creative ideas!

The current total for the #MyMiles Challenge is just shy of 20,000 miles!
