Am I overreacting? ETA

Ok, so my dd9 is in a program at her school called Girls on the Run. It's a nine week program where they meet, run, and do team building exercises while preparing for a 5k at the end. My dd did it last semester and chose to do it again this semester. Anyways, tomorrow is the 5k and she's super excited but here's my concern: where I live, it's currently 35 degrees and dropping. We have a freeze warning for tonight and the high for tomorrow is 40 degrees. The 5k starts at 9 am and is entirely outside.

Am I out of line to think that is not an appropriate temp for 8, 9, 10 year old kids to be out running in?


Eta: since I have to explain this-it will NOT be 40 degrees at race time. Actually it'll be about 30 degrees.



EDIT: We did the run. It was REALLY FUCKING COLD and my dd said her hands hurt for awhile but once we started moving, after the first mile, it was fine.

She'll be fine. Kids that age are impervious to cold weather. Remind her to dress warm and be done with it.
