What does RUN stand for?

Are you in?

RUN is an acronym for “are you in?”. It’s a quick and easy way for friends or colleagues to ask each other if they’re coming to a particular event or activity.

However, because it looks just like the regular word ‘run’, this slang can sometimes cause confusion. So, if you’re new to the term, you might need to take a second look to understand what it really means.

For instance, if someone sends you a text like “RUN 4 a run l8r 2nite?”, you might be puzzled at first. You might even wonder if they’re asking you to swap running sessions or something similarly unusual.

But don’t worry, they’re just asking if you’re in for a run later tonight. So, next time you see RUN in a message, remember it’s just a cool way of asking “are you in?” and not something about literally running!

Example for using ‘RUN’ in a conversation
