Head clicks: I've seen this complaint before, and it always seems to be a mystery and it's never been anything scary (like a tumor). HOWEVER, I always check everything out. Possibilities include ear canal (wax can cause amplified internal sounds), joint issues in cervical spine, temporomandibular joint problems, and of course, brain issues. See your provider and ease off on running until then.

Merits a work-up: Assuming it's not raining, the sensation merits a visit to your GP or to a neurologist. A thorough history and physical exam, as well as routine blood tests, will determine whether special imaging of brain and spine are needed to provide an answer.
