NO: Drs. Schwartz and wright are right. There is absolutely no need to stop if you want to prevent varicose veins from developing. If you already have varicose veins, and you get pain in your legs when running (especially if the pain is bad enough to make you have to stop) then you should see a vein specialist and consider treatment.
