    Just seen a roach dash across the kitchen, and it had me thinking: "Do insects really run?"

    Having watched some competitive level speed walking events, and even participating in an uncompetitive one once, I realised run was for the most part defined by it being a series of small controlled leaps forward. Having 6 legs and all, I don't think they do the full controlled leaps thing, so can what insects do to move fast really be considered running

    Yeah the crucial aspect of walking is having one foot on the ground at all times. When u run you're briefly in the air. I don't think insects really ever get 'airborne' when they're 'running' so technically they do be speedwalking.

    Interesting.

    With that in mind do you think it would be possible hold cockroach speedwalking comps, in the spirit of greyhound races? Think it could do wonders for the publicity of some insects

    I don't think insects are smart enough to be trained the same way dogs can be.
