No Place to Run is the eighth album by the band UFO. It was released in January, 1980 (date by official UFO site) by Chrysalis Records. It is the first album to feature Paul Chapman who replaced Michael Schenker on lead guitar.

The album was produced by George Martin, best known for his work with The Beatles. The record cover was issued in several different versions in the UK, although the only difference was the colour of the album title. Two singles were released from the album: "Young Blood" and "Letting' Go".

The album was reissued in 2009, remastered with an expanded booklet and bonus tracks.
