This chapter establishes part of postdoctoral research attempting to rethink contemporary running mobilities in the UK. It focuses on two kinds of running in this research project: first is the growing number of people who choose running as their mode of commuting. The second were the unintended, improvised and often undesirable moments of rushing, dashing and scrambling that are common in everyday life. The chapter details and analyses instances of 'emergency' running in the train station, paying particular attention to the ways in which mobilities are produced through the coming together of figurative and physical design features. It discusses the design of train stations and running spaces and presents Guildford train station in South East England as the case study. The chapter also focuses on three aspects of station design—temporal staging, semiotics and the material site—which affect the production of emergency-running through their presences and absences. It concludes by discussing the importance in producing certainty and uncertainty.
