A running fight is a situation where two or more weak groups compete for chances of escape to the center.

Running fight in the low Chinese fuseki  

In this variation of the Low Chinese Fuseki, White makes Black heavy by playing W1, then pincers with W3. Black counter-pincers with B4, after which a running fight starts with W5 and B6. Both the black and the white group at the bottom lack a base and must therefore run into the center to survive.
