Exciting news! GO Run for Fun has joined The Daily Mile family! The Daily Mile wants to expand into events, it’s sister charity GO Run For Fun is a ready made event delivery series with same shared aim as The Daily Mile ‘to encourage children to get active, stay fit and enjoy exercise by moving outside’.
It made sense to unite the two brands to become The Daily Mile GO Run For Fun. By rebranding The Daily Mile GO Run For Fun, it will sit alongside Fit For Life & Mission Kids Fit For Life creating a complete set of initiatives which all have The Daily Mile principles and aims at their core. The Daily Mile GO Run For Fun will now be focused on creating fun and safe running events as a reward for being Daily Mile registered schools.
On Wednesday 6th May 2020, we asked you all to get active in PINK together to celebrate #GORunForFun and feel connected whilst apart due to international lockdown restrictions. We were delighted to receive over 100 entries with a HUGE total of 158 of you all getting active in PINK together!! Click here to watch our video of all of your amazing entries.
Here at GO Run For Fun we are constantly overwhelmed by the support from our amazing volunteers – and at our Stockton-on-Tees event this year we hit a HUGE milestone of 10,000 volunteers! Our event on the 16th July 2019 was supported by Tom Bosworth, with almost 1,900 children running, as we further celebrated reaching 315,000 runners! What a great day for milestones. And to all of our volunteers, we couldn’t have done this without you!

We are immensely proud to have hit our 300,000 runners milestone in Sarralbe, France on the 28th May 2019!
