They play for 90 minutes. Kids are out there all day. I think some 16 year olds would struggle but some would be fine. Exactly the same as anybody any other age. I don't think there is any confincing roof that it does any more harm than it does to any other age group.
I don't know why any kid would want to do a half marathon but I DO know one lad who is desperate to run a 10k or further at 10 years. In 7 years we may have lost him to some other sport or worse.
