It took him more than 8.5 hours.

The Flying Pig released a statement Wednesday evening saying: “The Flying Pig Marathon takes the safety and security of all participants very seriously. We receive numerous requests for special accommodations each year and carefully evaluate each one. Our goal is to provide a positive race experience for all participants while supporting them along the course. The Flying Pig Marathon was founded on the idea of hosting a world-class road race experience and will always strive to do so.”

Eight members of the same family were registered together. The 6-year-old boy was the youngest.

An 11-year-old girl also completed the race also finishing in about 8.5 hours.

Race organizers say they plan to enforce age limits moving forward.
