The Run is a stream in the Dutch province of Noord-Brabant. It is a left tributary of the Dommel and part of the Meuse River basin.

The Run originates near the town of Weebosch and flows in a general northeast direction towards Veldhoven. South of Eersel it flows near the hamlets of Stokkelen, Schadewijk and Stevert.

Near the hamlet Stevert used to be a watermill in the Run, which became obsolete in 1969 due to the channelization of the stream.[1] Further downstream the Run passes the hamlet of Heers until it discharges into the Dommel, just south of Veldhoven.
