Mr. Catherine Morton, founder of the Kiddy Mile Race, who disclosed this to the media in an interview said, the event has now been fixed for Saturday April 13, at the El-Wak Sports Stadium, instead of the original date of March 23.
Speaking in an interview with the media, she said more schools and pupils have expressed interest in the 2019 edition of the competition, hence the need to postpone it, to allow others to register and participate.
She said, the aim of the competition was to unearth and groom talents, to become future heroes and champions.
