How to encourage a budding 6-year-old runner?

My little brother just did a kid's fun run and did really well. He won his age group easily and had a blast. He really wants to do more, and I'd like to encourage him, but I don't know what's safe for a little kid. How much can he run? How long of races can he do? Should I just let it go or should I take him on short runs with me when I go?
