The Florida State Fair is hosting the 1st Annual Deep Fried Dash 5K & Fun Run on Saturday, February 15, 2020, during the 116th Annual Florida State Fair. The race will begin at 7:00 AM at the Florida State Fairgrounds. The beginning of the racecourse takes the runner right through the Fair’s midway, passing all the fun and exciting rides then continues down the mall through our outdoor vendors and smells of the endless fair foods. Continuing on, race participants will pass through the agriculture side of the fairgrounds by all the livestock barns and arenas and finally, the race will end right where the participants began the race at one of our entertainment stages. Participants will be able to rest and interact with partners and vendors. All proceeds from the Deep Fried Dash will benefit the Florida State Fair Foundation. The Mission of the Florida State Fair Foundation is to improve and support the Florida State Fair agricultural, scientific, and educational programs. The Florida State Fair Foundation is designated as a 501(C)(3).
