Rainham Village Primary School was looking to create a daily mile track around their playing field that measures 467 linear metres and 1.2m wide using either a bonded rubber mulch or gravel. The school has a proactive ethos towards physical activity and health, always wanting to be at the forefront of any new activities.


“The Daily Mile Track around the Rainham Village playing field was created to measure exactly 467 linear metres in length and 1.2 metres in width, to fit the space available perfectly,” says Keith Parker. “Sportsafe expert engineers excavated and disposed off-site the existing grass surface before installing the specially-selected timber edging, giving the gravel to dust surface a secure foundation for maximum wear and longevity.”

“We are delighted with the inclusive Daily Mile Track installed by Sportsafe, which can be used all year round,” says Alfie Sears, PE Coordinator at Rainham Village Primary. “It has helped us to improve the physical activity of our pupils. Running or walking a mile is usually the highlight of their school day.”
