I have a household (in TwinBrooks) where three of the four have the running glitch.  I've heard that it is indeed a bug associated with Ambitions (or since it came out)  Personally I like it, I don't have to wait for them to wander to where ever.  And it's not trait related since my first Sim who got it was a couch potato!  And it happens spontaneously since I've stopped the aging in my house, so it's not to do with being kids and growing up.

I don't really like the running, but it makes me laugh when they run while carrying a toddler or infant.  And sometimes they run with their arms straight down and that's just hilarious!

I know what you mean.  I specifically had my couple have a baby, because I wanted to make her a PI when she got adult.  She started running as a youth and still running, pretty cool though, if she gets a PI job down the street, instead of driving that short distance, like some do, she will run to the end of the block.

I have yet to get this bug, but I have read it happens when someone plays tag, and a workaround is to go into edit town mode, evict the family, then move them back in to the same lot.

Yup, I think it's tag, and or fire fighter emergencies.

That's so weird that it happened right when they aged up for you, Salty!  Are you sure they didn't age up and then start playing tag right away?

I am not really sure, but I do know, because I just tried it, that evicting them and then putting them back in the same house, worked.  I was very glad, so whoever found that out, thanks a million and thanks Branr for putting that in here.  I hope it keeps working, because I have a couple of more.

Oh man...  it's definitely tag.  My Sim's husband has the run around bug and I was just going to live with it as long as Pepper didn't have it.  Just now, she was at the park doing the Grill-A-Thon (which she won) and there was a kid sitting on the bench all by himself reading a book.  I had her go talk to him (he's an odd kid with very weird hair and a deep voice) and then suddenly he tagged her.  I cancelled the action just as soon as I could, even before she had gone more than a couple of steps.  But it was too late!  She got the Run Around Bug!  Argh!!

After I cured this kid of the bug, all was well and I followed my PI on one of her jobs, came back and the kid and mother were playing tag, I thought, oh no ya don't, no more playing tag, lol.  Too late, so I evicted them and put them back in and all is well again, until the next time.  sheesh

I haven't evicted my family yet, do you get to keep your wishes when you do this or does it wipe them out?  I'm planning to do it soon since I have a family of 6 speed racers, but trying to wait for the right moment in case it messes anything up.

Unfortunately, you lose all wishes and I just found out, it keeps starting my PI back to 0 on cases solved.  I was wondering why she was solving all of these cases and it only shows 4 now, I know she has solved at least 12 to 15, so now I know.  I aged the youth up, no more tag and no one has childish.

Either I did something wrong or my Sim DeAndre doesn't have the normal Run Around Bug.  He's a townie that my Sim married and he's run everywhere since I took control of him when they married.  I went to Edit Town and evicted them.  Then I put them back into the same house and chose it as my active household.  It reset all of their wishes, but DeAndre still runs everywhere.  His traits are Family-Oriented, Great Kisser, Excitable, Virtuoso, and Artistic.  I wonder if the Excitable trait is doing it.  I'll have to check it out.

Update: Losing the Excitable trait didn't help, but I'm thrilled to report that a trip to Egypt worked great!  No more running around for DeAndre!  Yay!

I have had this bug on my new Twinbrook family, on their first child, she just kept running since aging into a teen. Not that I mind, I find it adorable, and she has grown into a young adult since while keeping this trait. Has never played tag either as i'm keeping an eye on her 24/7 as she's my favourite.

I have since saved the household and moved from Twinbrook to Sunset Valley, and the running is still happening. But I have noticed something. Her everyday clothes include a pair of sneakers, and I think it is linked to the running because her job is in politics, and all her work clothes include heel shoes, and the interesting part is that she never runs in her work clothes, but as soon as she changes to everyday clothes, she starts running again.

Hope this helps somehow :)

LOL!  These are my magic shoes...

or better yet...

I ran and ran, for no particular reason, I just felt like running.

LOL! It's the Forrest Gump bug!

Four of my family of 7 have started to run. I decided to pack the offending foursome (a YA brother and sister and the brother's twin child daughters) off to China where they stopped running. They've come back and so far haven't run since.
Whilst evicting works, I'd recommend that players who have WA try sending the runners on a holiday before eviction, since you won't lose any wishes you elect to follow.
Grr Argh!

I have a mom and child daughter that are running. I've never evicted anyone. Can you give me instructions on how to do that? They are driving me crazy! LOL

Thanks for the vacation tip.  I would much rather do that than evict them.  I hate losing wishes  and LTW counts.

My own vacation tip isn't working for me.  I've taken Hank and Tamara Goddard on vacation.  Although they didn't run while they were in France, they still ran when they got home.  This particular town is hugely bugged.  I think everyone is running.  I blame Blair Wainwright.  :)

Hahaha, you really should move them away to another town. Then you know straight away if the problem lies in the town or in your sims.

Had this bug too. My sim Arianna and her daughter Melodi would start running EVERYWHERE, after her husband played tag with Melodi (my memory is so bad, I can't remember whether the husband was affected or not! I don't care so much for him, anyway...  :P). But it did disappear after a few sim days, without travelling or evicting them.
They live in Sunset valley (have all lived there their whole lives) and I have the latest patch, but not Ambitions, so it's the patch that does it. I don't remember them playing tag since after the running bug disappeared, but I'll have to see if a game of tag will set it off again in the future.
And I've got no mods or CC (never have, and not sure if I ever will), but I think we're all already agreeing that it's no third party content that's the problem with this bug.

I have an entire family who runs around the house, every thing they do. This only started recently. I wish the simbot ran with her jets around the house too, but she doesn't. I don't really mind, since walking is so slow, but it makes me feel like I'm in a hurry!

Funny thing is, you work in a house where they all run and then go to another house to play and they walk, probably seems like slow motion in that house, lol.  I just don't have any kids right now that they play tag with anymore, unless someone that has the childish trait comes over, which has happened.  Weird to see two adults running around all over the yard playing tag.   At least they are having fun.
