Possibly: If the running is very traumatic say through obstacles courses or your are pounding pavement in poorly cushioned shoes , ie military recruits running on hard pavement in boots, then they it can cause broken blood vessels. If you are in well cushioned shoes on reasonable terrain you should have anything to worry about.
