jogging is running ~TJ84

It’s walking vs running… if there’s at least one foot on the ground at all times you’re walking, if there’s a transitional period where no feet are on the ground then you’re running.

As has been said, jogging is a form of running, normally considered as a low intensity run

I like wikipedia but in this case it is just wrong, so as  I don’t have the inclination to update it and fight over the entry, this is my take on the subject. In almost all cases the terms are interchangeable but be careful with the term jogger as many people who see themselves as runners will be irritated or offended!

If we look at running in wikipedia “Running is a means of terrestrial locomotion allowing humans and other animals to move rapidly on foot. It is simply defined in athletics terms as a gait in which at regular points during the running cycle both feet are off the ground. This is in contrast to walking, where one foot is always in contact with the ground, – The term running can refer to any of a variety of speeds ranging from jogging to sprinting.

There are no definitions to differentiate jogging from running – no rules to differentiate jogging from running because it is a form of running.
