Kids’ K (Non-school aged students) race begins at 8:20 a.m. Kids’ Mile race begins at 8:30 a.M.
The South Florida Fair Kids’ Mile is a 12 week training program that enables kids to complete a full marathon (26.2 miles) by running approximately 2 miles per week. By doing so, kids develop the tremendous feeling of accomplishment and confidence without the high risk involved with young kids running a full marathon in one day. The program is completed in grand fashion on Saturday, January 18, 2020 at the South Florida Fair in West Palm Beach as each child is able to run the final mile of the marathon. (Kids’ K Race - Non school aged students - starts at 8:20 a.m. and Kids’ Mile Race starts at 8:30 a.m.)
The South Florida Fair Kids’ Mile has been endorsed by the School District of Palm Beach County. All elementary schools are encouraged to participate.
Physical Education teachers implement the program at each individual school. The teachers are in direct communication with the South Florida Fair staff to ensure distribution of documentation and mileage log sheets. Each student athlete who participates and completes all 26.2 miles will receive one (1) free admission to the Fair GOOD ON THE DAY OF THE RACE, OR ANY TUESDAY, WEDNESDAY & THURSDAY of the 2020 South Florida Fair, finisher’s medal, cape, bib number and refreshments after the race.
The second component of the program requires students to read 15 minutes each day. These lessons include topics on nutrition and fitness.
Deadline to register is Friday, December 13, 2020. Entry fee is $10.00 per child. We encourage parents to register their children online below, or with their school’s Athletic Director and/or Physical Education Teacher.

The third component of the program is the recycle component. Sponsored by Capital One, we ask that you bring gently used sports equipment the morning of the race. These items will benefit the Palm Beach County PAL (Police Athletic League) program.
