Depends: As a doctor, any complaint of fecal incontinence is always a cause for great concern so the simple answer here is it is best take this to a doctor for a peronal exam and evaluation. Now, some folks might, as a result vigorous physical activity develop a more urgent need to defecate and be normal, but true incontinence of stool is a bothersome symptom and i'd recommend you see a doctor.
