To make a correction, I believe this is a 3.3mi race for adults and a 1mile fun run for kids. I would think a kids 1mile fun run would not be limited to over 14 years old as stated. I'm not associated with the race, so perhaps someone who is could also clarify.

The kid's fun run is for any child under (or is it up to) age 14. Any age runner may also race in the 3.3 mile race which is at 10:30.
