SERIO Research Helps the Blue Mile Expand


SERIO was commissioned to conduct a socio-economic assessment of the inaugural Blue Mile event in Plymouth in July 2010. Following on from the success of the event and the research findings, it has just been announced that it will become a national event.

The Blue Mile is a mass participation event designed to encourage and facilitate engagement with the blue environment. Open to everyone, participants are invited to complete a mile in, on or next to a water environment to raise vital support and money for WWF-UK, the world's leading conservation organisation. Participants can choose to swim, kayak, sail or even just walk.

The newly expanded Blue Mile will be rolled out across the UK with a series of grass-roots challenges and a new flagship London Blue Mile event taking place on Sunday 4th September 2011.
