The Daily Mile Foundation are thrilled to share the news that The Daily Mile will be the first ever non-competitive event at Lonach’s Highland Games, this weekend in Scotland.

The Lonach Highland and Friendly society has joined forces with The Daily Mile to bring the popular initiative to the Gathering and Games to encourage Aberdeenshire children to get active and join in 15 minutes of daily activity.

Founder of The Daily Mile, Elaine Wyllie, will be present on the day to call on Aberdeenshire school children to get moving and to mark the first ever non-competitive event to ever take place at The Lonach Highland Gathering.

School children will complete The Daily Mile at Lonach in the event’s main arena and will be led in by a local pipe band. Children will walk, jog or run The Daily Mile from 12.45pm to 1pm and will finish ahead of The Lonach Highlanders’ march in at 1pm.
