The Golden Kilometre Research
The Golden Kilometre Research

Exciting research is taking place for the local school-based physical activity initiative, called the 'Golden Kilometre'. The research is being conducted as part of a PhD study to understand how the Golden Kilometre can improve children's physical literacy and fitness levels.

Physical literacy is the motivation, confidence, physical competence, knowledge, and understanding to value and take responsibility for engagement in physical activities for life; the more physical literate a child is, the more likely they will participate in sport and physical activity into adulthood.

A systematic review is currently underway and qualitative and quantitative research is scheduled to begin in a few weeks.

If you would like to know more about the research and/or you run the Golden Kilometre at your school and would like to take part, please contact the lead researcher Shannah Anico Email:
