While bulking, is it ok to run and do sprints intervel training if i'm taking creatine and still keeping muscle mass and strength?

Yes: Aerobic activity is good for your heart and fitness (lean body effects). Creatine supplementation will help with bulking if taken after resistance training. In combination, your strength should increase. Avoid overuse injuries by tracking your progress and taking one day of rest per week.
