Just wondering what is the most effective way to shoot someone running?

What do you mean? There are so many choices that you have to make based on the story and location, there isn't any one way.

We often use an upside-down tripod, and hold it in the middle. It gives excellent results!

It's best to get them in the back. Just hold your breath when you squeeze the trigger. It's easy.

If you're on a smooth surface you can strap a sportscam (e.g. GoPro Hero) to a bicycle and ride in front, behind or alongside the runner and get smooth shots over any distance you like.

I always like to have the camera behind a person if you can, using a steadicam of some sort. I find that if the camera isn't running with you it doesn't feel too intense.

If intense is what you're going for.

id say one good way is get a pvc pipe if you dont have a monopod u can use a tripod. and flip it upside down. and record feet and run backwards or farward. remember u only have to show clips real quick do id do a shot from the front and one from the back and some of the feet some side shots just get as much as you can.
