Sure, though as you noted there is the mystique of the marathon with the general population. The marathon or the half-marathon likely represents something really big that those kids could not fathom accomplishing today, whereas the 5K or 10K would likely not represent the same at all. I see no good reason to not use those distances for those age ranges and can see how training for something much shorter would result in a rather brief program.
