Georgina
Hi, it's Georgina from BBC Learning English. Today we look at 5 ways of using 'run'.

The most common way of using run is to move your legs faster than a walk. I had to run for the bus this morning. I was so late.

Run can be used when we need to go somewhere unexpectedly for a short time. Oh no, there's no milk! I have to run to the shop later.

Another way to use run is to talk about a regular transport service. The trains normally run every hour until quite late.

You can use run to show that someone is the boss of a project. My cousin runs a clothes shop.

Lastly, we use run when we have to leave in a hurry.

Roy
Hurry up! You're late for the meeting!

Georgina
Oh no, I've got to run! Bye for now!
