With AF-C:

I think face detection did detect it, probably didn't recognize it from the recorded faces, but that's not really an issue in this setting.  He's moving a lot fast than he would have when he started walking a couple years back.

I had less background and a lot of light, but I think the fundamental settings work about the same, AF-C, face detection, object tracking off, AF area wide. Hold the shutter half way down, when it looks like it might be in focus, or you see the green outline on the face, press it all the way, you back to halfway and repeat.
