I was wondering one day while browsing the internet, could a running skill work in Urban Dead?

I think it could if sufficient advantages and disadvantages are added. It could work for survivors, maybe zombies, whatever works best. It could be a normal skill but requires body building and a level requirement. When the running skill is bought it can be activated as an ability, which would include advantages and disadvantages.

Firstly, the advantages of running;
  - Being able to traverse blocks quickly and efficiently, leaving a zombie hoard behind in the dust. It could be, for example, activating running mode and travelling two blocks for one AP.
  - Fleeing when the fight turns ugly, to live to fight another day! Or, keep running if your a coward.
  - Assissting those in need in far places, but you obviously cant run from one end of the city to another, or even maybe three blocks or less... Or more, if you think its good enough.

Now the disadvantages;
  - If you continually run, you WILL get exhuasted. Sufficient skill will be abke to get you further, but not by much.
  - There could be the possibility of tripping, which could cause a waste of AP to get back up (maybe 1-5 AP cost). You could also be injured, and lose a small amount of HP. If a zombie attacks you while your down, it could get a percentage increase to hit.
  - You cant run if your surrounded by a horde of zombies obviously, but maybe you could if theres only a small amount of zombies which would average as a small one digit number.

Add your own possible idea's which could help better balance this idea and feel free to burn this idea down back to hell, just dont simply say the idea sucks, provide some reasons please.

I also realise the small chance of this idea being actually considered actually good but I'm just tossing out ideas for the hell of it.

Encumbrance will also be a disadvantage. Can't run when your weighed down!
