If the idea of pulling on some Lycra and pounding the sidewalk fills you with horror, maybe your running ambitions should be kept to playing computer games that let your characters do all the hard work and panting for you. Whether you dream of winning the gold medal for sprinting at the Olympics or whether you were addicted to Track & Field in the 1980s, we have the right running game for you, right here on Gamepix. All brilliant in terms of usability, our running games offer you the option of taking your training seriously and reaching an end goal or just racing around for fun, alongside a storyline that will have you in stitches from laughing, as well as exerting yourself. Arcade games let you take on obstacles while you race, with coins to collect and things to leap over as your legs spin as quickly as possible, while Olympic simulator options will let you race against professional athletes from other countries. All different types of running games are fun and despite being varied in terms of plots and graphic styles, they all have one thing in common – you need to run the fastest to win. You never know, guiding a character through various levels of running might actually inspire you to pull on some sneakers and do some real-life sidewalk-pounding of your own! Here at Gamepix, we have pulled together the best selection of running games to keep you entertained and they are all presented in HTML5 for your gaming convenience. You won’t need to download any additional software to play, regardless of your browser or device type and just like going outside to do some sprints, all of our running options are totally free to participate in. We feel fitter just talking about them!
