The 2017 Kids Fun Run takes place on Sunday, 3 December at 10:30am. This event is sponsored by Milo and the Cayman Islands Government's Ministry of Community Affairs, Youth & Sports, and is open to all kids ages 5 to 12 years old.
Introduced in 2012 the Kids Marathon log allows kids participating in the Kids Fun Run to to keep a record of their activity leading up to the Kids Fun Run. The goal is to have completed a full marathon (26.2 miles) at the end of the Kids Fun Run in December. The first 25.5 miles of the marathon can be achieved through running, walking, swimming and hiking, and kids can have their parents or another adult sign their log verifying that they have completed each mile. After completing the 0.7 mile Kids Fun Run and crossing the finish line on 3 December, successful participants can boast that they have officially completed a marathon. In addition, they can enter their logs in a draw for a prize courtesy of Kids Fun Run sponsor Milo. Click here to download the kids marathon log.
