Doesn';t really work in English - you need "for" fifteen minutes

I agree but there is no way to report that...

"We walk" isn't accepted. Why? These are so random, usually you can translate either "is talking" or "talks" etc., but not with this.

I think there's a word missing -- I think it would have to be "We run for 15 minutes" in English.

Given the existing looseness of Duo translations, no. "We walk 15 minutes" is used, and should be accepted.
