So, what is The Daily Mile Destinations?

 

Classes are encouraged to aim to achieve 100 days of The Daily Mile by completing their Daily Mile 3 – 5 days a week, to move towards achieving a new Daily Mile destination sticker.

 

Each time your class reaches one of the 15 destinations around the world, add the country’s sticker to your class passport, and away you go, off to the next destination on the map. Classes are free to start anywhere on the map; the choice is yours!
