Making daily exercise fun and rewarding…
Yourtrak records time and distance walked or run and makes daily exercise fun and rewarding. It encourages team work as individual classes and the school itself go on educational journeys throughout Europe and the World as they cumulatively complete miles.
Each student is encouraged to complete up to 9 marathons ranging from London to New York! They are rewarded with virtual certificates and badges as they complete each 26.2 mile marathon.
“Yourtrak app given children chance to re-motivate themselves,We can calculate and observe progress and it gives the children the chance to see how they have done that day, week, month”
Eddie Hawhthorne Childwall Primary School
“Yourtrak offers fantastic features. It’s user friendly and simple, easy and quick to input the data as the pupils come through the door. The pupils are really committed to completing the marathon”

With more than a third of children overweight or obese the Yourtrak App has been designed to incentivise the younger generation and get them moving.
Yourtrak has been developed in collaboration with over 50 schools across the UK to encourage the children at these schools to engage and enjoy running their mile a day. Yourtrak is fun and easy to use rewarding every step every child makes on his or her own journey.
Designed to be like a fun game, Yourtrak helps set goals, reward effort and encourage children to do a little bit more exercise promoting healthy friendly competition.
Why is running a mile a day so popular and why does it work…
Because almost every child can run or walk a mile per day and enjoy the benefits of doing so
- It’s quick taking around 15 minutes a day.
- It’s free and there is no timetable
- Running a mile is non competitive
- Children do not need to change to enjoy their exercise
We are looking for a new incentive for the Daily Mile that we already do with all children. As PE Lead I am keen to monitor and reward children / classes for participation.
It has worked well motivating the children and staff to complete the daily mile.
We are a 3 form entry primary school in the centre of manchester with over 700 children.
Our children complete the daily mile by running/walking round out path on the school field.
We’re looking to start up the daily mile/10 or 15 mins running time into our daily timetable across the school and I’ve been looking into an app that can support and motivate children to beat their own PBs etc.
We are very focused on promoting a ‘Healthy Lifestyle’ with our children. We have been participating in the ‘Daily Mile’ for the last few years & we are always ready to look at new initiatives that would benefit our children & develop their physical well-being.’’
We have been running the mile for a couple of years now and I would like to try and make it more interesting for the children.
Just interested to see a development from our mile a day which has been running for the last 18 months. It feels as if some have little motivation on a daily basis and we could do with re igniting interest, amongst everyone.
We are a school based in Stockton-on-Tees and have a good percentage of our school who only participates in physical activitywhilst at school. The whole school takes part in the Daily Mile and this app sounds like it would be a great way to monitor and record the children’s achievements as well as encouraging them to beat their personal best.
We are about to start the Mile a day and heard about this app so wondered if it would be a good thing to track how much we are exercising to track our progress and provide a bit of an incentive to increase each individual child’s laps over time.
We have been doing the Mile as a whole school for the past two years but need some extra help with motivating and encouraging pupils to take part. A very large proportion of pupils are not motivated to run.
We want to bring the mile a day back, this time bigger and better than ever, to really motivate the children. Our children are not the most active and we would love for them to be more motivated to keep being active every day.
We are a double platinum award winning school for PE and School Sport in East Grinstead and are looking to further extent our use of our all weather track.
We are currently going out as a class each day and making the most of our amazing outdoor circuit, using pedometers to track our steps with the aim of reaching a million steps during a school year. The tracking side is tricky and becoming a challenge which is putting some teachers off going outside. It would be interesting to see how Yourtrak improves this.
We are trying to track our childrens activity on a daily basis for KS1 and three times weekly for KS2 and are looking for a simple way to track and achieve this.
We are a small school in the Highland of Scotland who do a mile a day but are looking for alternative ways to motivate children and record distances
We would like to Track distances run without it being too time consuming for KS1 teachers.
The Children need more motivation to run their mile. A competitive element would likely encourage children more!
The daily mile was introduced to children a couple of years ago and we have the markings on the playground as well as allocated time in the day for children to complete the daily mile. I’d like a way to excite the children about the daily mile and to see it as a fun activity by going on journeys, completing challenges etc. I’d also like a way to monitor children’s activity to support them further.
We have been doing the daily mile for about a year now and it has been really successful and popular with the children. We were recommended your app when we had our all weather track put down as an additional way of recording the daily physical activity of our pupils.
I am looking for a fun way to encourage both schools to participate in the daily mile, but also encourage pupils outside of school.
I am interested to see how this app can make a mile a day fun.
I don’t want the children to lose their motivation for the daily mile. Yourtrak sounds like it will help to keep the children focused and motivated. I am keen to see how this works.
I am the PE coordinator at Barkisland’s. We are a village school in Halifax and we currently run a daily mile schedule throughout the school. We have a running track that each class uses for the daily mile. I just like to see how your app can support our daily mile throughout the school.
We are a large infant school and we are looking for more ways to get our children active on top of the weekly Physical Education sessions.
We have been running a mile for a few years and would like to bring a bit more excitement into it.
We are interested in finding out more about Yourtrak, as we have been successfully running the daily mile in school for around a year now and we are thinking of ways to keep children engaged.
We are currently an active school who do the daily mile and would like a way of tracking pupil progress. We are interested in trying out the app to see what this can bring to the school.
We have just introduced the daily mile this academic year and are looking for ways to encourage pupils to keep on top of their health and fitness.

The constant positive enforcement from both the App and Teachers has motivated the pupils to stay focused and “on trak” with their journey.
Webinar Mark Edmundson, Elmridge Primary School
”Using the App brought a new dimension to pupils fitness and encouraged them in getting involved with the Daily Mile Challenge. Not only was it easier to track each students progress but it helped support the pupils taking part.”
Yourtrak is built around 3 journeys…
8 individual marathons, the class journey across Europe and the school journey around the World.
