The Best Running Movies

List Criteria: Only movies that feature running as a plot point.

A list of the best running movies. These are films that feature running as either a sport or as simply a central theme to the plot. We believe we've listed all of the best ones, but if you think we missed one please feel free to add it to the list yourself. Typically in movies, running implies a chase. In these films however, the running is often for many other purposes, including running in a marathon, jogging as part of a different type of race, or sprinting to beat the clock. If you're a runner yourself then you're sure to love the movies on this list.
