Distance for kids
Answered By Michael Bergmann
is it safe for kids between the ages of 7-9 to run 8k races? What are safe distances for youths to run? Thanks
I would recommend starting kids that are 7 to 9 years old to not race anything above a 2k . They might be able to run more in a training run on soft surfaces but their joints are still developing and it is more important to have them have fun, learn some proper running technique and just build up to that as they become older.
