A sunny day in Tavaux

1300 children joined the third edition of ‘The Daily Mile Go Run For Fun’ in Tavaux.

On Friday 2nd June the third edition of the event “The Daily Mile Go Run For Fun” took place in Tavaux. The event this year brought together 1300 children in between five and ten year old from 15 schools near the industrial site of Tavaux. More than 60 volunteers helped deliver the event.

The event, which is completely free for schools and organised by INEOS Inovyn employees at the Tavaux plant and Tavaux Town Hall, in collaboration with the Ministry of Education, was an initiative taken by INEOS CEO Jim Ratcliffe in 2013. It is intended to communicate to children the desire to engage in physical activity and thus fight against obesity.

This year Valentine Chapelotte, Jura athlete, came to support. Valentine answered questions on stage before hosting the warm-up session with music and she then ran alongside the children.

Thank you to the children and to the teachers for their participation and the good atmosphere!

Great success for the first ever The Daily Mile Go Run For Fun in Jemeppe, Belgium

On Friday 26th May 1,250 children from the towns of Jemeppe-sur-Sambre and Sambreville participated in this sporting event in joy and good spirit.

The 1st edition of The Daily Mile GO Run For Fun event in Jemeppe-sur-Sambre brought together 1,250 children aged 6 to 12 and 95 teachers from 12 schools.

This event, completely free for schools and organised by staff from the INEOS Inovyn site with the support of students from the Physical Education section of the Athénée Baudouin 1er in Jemeppe-sur-Sambre, the Panathlon Wallonia-Brussels association, the Val de Sambre Rescue Zone, the Jemeppe-sur-Sambre Police and the municipalities of Jemeppe-sur-Sambre and Sambreville has been a great success.

The mascot Dart and an animation team were present to ensure the festive side of the event. After a warm-up session with music the students ran along the course. At the end of the run, all children received a medal, a souvenir of their active participation in this first edition.

Three high-level triathletes attented this 1st local The Daily Mile GO Run For Fun: Alexandra Tondeur, pro-triathlete, Etienne Claisse, age-group athlete and also an engineer at one of the production units at the INEOS Inovyn Jemeppe site and Olivier Lange. All three ran with the children, answered their questions and … agreed to take the pose, the time of a few photos in a relaxed atmosphere.

What another fantastic day it’s been!

World Daily Mile Day in Dundee

Over 1,000 children participated in The Daily Mile on 27th April in the grounds of a transformed Baxter Park in Dundee that included a stage, music, and guest speakers. Children came from local primary and SEN schools and enjoyed their Daily Mile in front of founder Elaine Wyllie MBE and athletes including Olympian Eilidh Doyle, Paralympian Owen Miller MBE, Paralympian Derek Rae, and long distance runner Jake Smith, as well as Maree Todd, Minister for Social Care Mental Wellbeing and Sport.

A lovely day in Lavera

The final installment in The Daily Mile GO Run For Fun 2023 Autumn Series took place on Thursday 20th October in France.

Lavera, Marseille played host to not only 2500 children from 18 schools, but some unusually mild weather, with temperatures reaching 21 degrees.
One of the hallmark events of the year, the day saw children take part in a 2 km run as well as fun workshops on vortex throwing, long jump and health and well being.

During the lunch break a special guest, Monseigneur Christian Delarbre who gave a brief address to the children and staff before the start of the afternoon session.
The Local Athletics club (Althetic club de Miramas) provided some brilliant demonstrations of hurdles and long jump for the children with the local athletes showing off their skills.

With such a great event rounding off this year’s The Daily Mile GO Run For Fun Events, it will be hard to top them in 2023, we will do our very best though!

Belgium is back on the same day as Singapore!

Friday 7th October was a brilliant day for The Daily Mile GO Run For Fun with two events happening on the same day, 6565 miles apart.

In Europe, Belgium saw the return of the well established The Daily Mile GO Run For Fun event in Feluy. The event that has hosted events previously in 2018 and 2019 returned for a third installment!

Hosted at the Stade du Tivoli in La Louvière, with over 2000 children from nearly 20 schools in attendance, the INEOS volunteers hosted two fun runs across the day, accompanied, of course by Dart!
Both runs were a success and thoroughly enjoyed by both the children and teaching staff. Dart even got involved and helped start the runs off before being left behind by the children and deciding to clap in the finishers.

Across the globe in Singapore, another established The Daily Mile GO Run For Fun event went off without a hitch. The run was completed by 200 children who then were surprised by a brilliant funfair which they thoroughly enjoyed (although it could be said teachers may be enjoyed this even more).

This was undoubtedly a great day for The Daily Mile GO Run For Fun as well as for all those involved.
With the end of the year drawing closer we are hoping for more days like this in 2023.

Success in Sweden!

On Friday 9th September 2022, Sweden kicked off The Daily Mile GO Run For Fun 2022 Autumn series. The event was held in Stenungsund and was the first ever event held by the initiative in Sweden with 700 children from 6 schools in attendance.

Children and teachers enjoyed a brilliant Friday morning completing the 2 km route in the brilliant woodland trail of the Stenungsund Arena.

The event went off without a hitch and was such as success, that the INEOS staff at the Stenungsund site are already in talks about hosting another event in 2023!

We certainly are looking forward to another Swedish success in 2023, until then its fair to say that the Stenungsund event is a brilliant addition to The Daily Mile GO Run For Fun calendar.
