This can be used in a few different ways:
- In the Olympics there is the Long Jump, which requires the athletes to run forward and jump as far as they can.
- It could also be used in simple terms e.g. Children playing a game in a park, or running and jumping (splashing) into wet puddles.
- (Go and) take a running jump is said when you want someone to go away and stop annoying you
Example: “He wouldn’t stop following me around, so I told him to go and take a running jump”
