6 to 8 years old is a bit young for formal running training in my
opinion. However, Runtex ( offers something called
Marathon Kids and may also know of some local coaches, etc. For
instance, just yesterday they had a seminar.

Runtex is a great store and they are staffed with very knowledgeable
and good people. Disclaimer: I worked there in 2000 so I am a bit
biased. ;-)
