A male or female would be fine for that distance and pace. But they have to be worked up to it. You cannot do any forced running until the pup in well over a year old, probably not until 18 mo. Not Even slower running with pup on grass.
I shipped a pup from Washington state to Baltimore. He was fine.
If you want to get going right into running, then a rescue would be your best bet.
