I'm with everyone else on the run/walk front. As to speed for running you should be able to hold a conversation when you're running. This should help you to gauge your pace more eaily.
As to the comments you experienced they were totally out of order. Parkrun is about getting everyone to run and there is no place for comments like that. Use it positively though to give you more determination to carry on and improve. |The majority of runners are supportive and will encourage each other.
