COMMUNITY: Return of the Coventry Children’s Mile!

26 April 2023

The Coventry Children's Mile event is returning this year after the event saw more than 1,800 children from over 30 schools participate in 2019 during the city’s year as European City of Sport.

The event, taking place on 18th June, is designed to encourage children to stay active, particularly those from hard-to-reach areas.  

This year, the event will be supporting 2023’s Team Coventry by raising funds for travel costs for the team to compete in the International Children’s Games which is taking part in Daegu, South Korea after taking place in Coventry in 2022.  

A local charity which is yet to be chosen will also be supported by the event. 

All participants will receive a T-shirt and certificate of participation and can choose to run, walk or jog the route. The route is fully accessible, meaning children of all abilities can take part. Entries are to be made via primary schools, with P.E. leads in each school receiving all necessary information from their School Games Organiser. 

The Coventry Children’s Mile 2023 is a partnership between Coventry City Council, CV Life and Coventry’s School Games Organisers.

For more information, please speak to your School Games Organiser or email covsport@coventry.gov.uk.
