You can if no sympto: It depends on the severity and degree of mitral regurgitation.If you have been running since you were diagnosed and never felt short of breath and had to stop, than you can continue to run as long as you have been cleared to run by your cardiologist in your case with mild regurgitation there is seems to be no risk as long as it was diagnosed as mild by your cardilologist if in doubt get it checked.
