Dear Pupil/Parent/Guardian,

We are launching the ‘Stoneyholme Virtual Mile’ challenge from 20th July to 28th August and would love for you and your family to get involved! To make this challenge more interesting it will be a  Burnley wide, mass-participation event that anyone of any age or ability can take part in (yes that’s right, we encourage parents to get involved too!).


Throughout the 6 weeks we will be encouraging everyone to get out and run, jog or walk, one mile, and send in your entries. Every entry from a child, parent or teacher that is associated with Stoneyholme will collect a point for our school.

To achieve a mile you will need to complete 8 laps by either walking, jogging or running around Stoneyholmes MUGA.

1 mile = 2000 steps.


To make your entry to Burnley Leisure  and Burnley Schools Sports Partnership you must enter your best mile time by completing the simple form:


We would also like you to complete our  “Stoneyholme Virtual Mile” for this you must complete a certain amount of miles per week and send your entry to Miss Salkeld via email on Purple Mash. Please visit our PE Summer School Challenge page to find your entry form along with a tutorial video.  We would also encourage you to take lots of photos/videos and send them to us via purple mash.


The grade of the certificates will depend on how many miles you achieve over the six weeks. How many miles do you think you can complete?! To achieve a pass, merit or distinction you will need to achieve the following:



 EYFS – Y1

Y2 – Y3

Y4 – Y5


½ mile per week for 6 weeks

1 mile per week for 6 weeks

Good luck everyone!

We look forward to seeing you move! Get up and be active with your families!
