High blood pressure.: When you are running your blood pressure is going to go up. The pain may then be associated with infection in the gums (periodontal disease) or an abscessed tooth. You need to see your dentist.

Clenching: Is it possible you are grinding or clenching your teeth. If so, lips together, teeth apart, tongue up is going to posture your lower jaw in a healthy biological posture.

Cold air?: Runners often breath through their mouth, and cold air can affect areas of recession or exposed root surfaces. Even in hot weather, air being pulled across exposed roots can cause severe pain. Check with your dentist about recession or other possible causes of this tooth pain.
