The best way to treat the pain is to get it checked so that you have an accurate diagnosis. Once you have a diagnosis, treatment can be recommended.

In brief: Stretching....
One likely diagnosis is it band syndrome (iliotibial band tendinitis).
This is common in runners. Proper warm-up and post-exercise icing is important. Also, gradually increasing your running distances and intensity is beneficial. Stretching and strengthening the area can help treat and prevent this. See this link for details: http://www.Therunningadvisor.Com/iliotibial_band_syndrome.Html.
