"On the Run" (also known as Auf der Flucht) is a 1982 double A-side single by the Austrian musician Falco that was released as a promotional single in France, Canada and the US.

It was produced in 1981 in Berlin, Germany, by Robert Ponger. On the other side of the single, there is another song called Maschine brennt, the double a-side single "On the run/Maschine brennt" peaked at number nine in the US Hot Dance Club Play chart.

In European countries (except France), the single wasn't released as a double A-side, which meant the next single after "Der Kommissar" became "Maschine brennt" instead (that didn't include "Auf der Flucht") in case of Falco's home country Austria.

In Austria and Norway, the song peaked at number four in the official charts. In Germany, it reached number ten, in Spain number 34, and in the Netherlands number 49.
