In brief: No

Running does not cause placental abruption.
Ever. So what does cause abruptions? Abdominal trauma (falling, car accidents, etc), high blood pressure, cocaine use, and other reasons we may not fully understand. If you are doing activities, wear good shoes and be careful as your balance is off during pregnancy.
