8 year old Teagen Redden and her 11 year old brother Tajh are both accomplished Ultra-Marathon Runners.  Is it even safe to allow/encourage a child that young to run that far? Listen as we interview their parents and a medical professional!

We thought it only fair to allow both parents to share their view on allowing their young children to brave these 100 mile ultra-trail runs.  We also invited an unbiased, seasoned runner/Pediatrician to join us to get comments from a medical professional. This is a very controversial topic on parenting as runners.
