They come complete with a supporting Factsheet for children (and families) to do as an individual challenge or motivator. Each time children run, jog or walk a mile they tick off a box on the map to the next landmark. During the leg to each local landmark the children are encouraged to find out more about it and write 2 of these facts down on the factsheet. Both are designed to take 30 days, if a child does a mile each day – so a half-term at least.
