We don't have a ParkRun anywhere near us, but we're going to be in Bedford in a couple of weeks and I was thinking of going along but we've 2 boys aged 5 and 8. They both love to run, but I don't know whether they can run 5k. The parkrun website says that its fine to take kids. I expect the 8 year old could do 5k with no real bother, whereas the 5 year old would probably not due to boredom in the normal course of things, but might keep going if in a Group event. Obviously I wouldn't 'make' them keep running (not sure how you could anyway!) if they wanted to stop, but is it a totally daft idea to take them to a ParkRun? Does anyone else take kids and, if so, what age?
