Agree 100% with madman. The heart rate charts most people are famaliar with are meaningless for atheletes (they were actually published for people to use AFTER cardiac events). I can think of one good uses for runners: Monotoring waking heart rate for overtraining.

There is just to much variability from kid to kid and of the environment. Being slightly dehydrated can change your heart rate significantly for example.
