My eldest is 8 years old this week and she would like to do parkrun. I have registered her for it but our local one is only 5k although children do run. She has been running 1.5 miles cross country at school and she is a little speedy pants. She hasn't done a longer run though. I have suggested she runs at my pace (5k in 31-32mins) which another school friend of her does with his mum. What experiences do you have? Am I barking mad?
