* The trope is referenced in the ''[[Literature/{{Newsflesh}}]]'' series by Mira Grant. Shaun Mason, ruminating on other weird trappings and tropes of the 20th century mentions that with anti-zombie security in American airports, anyone attempting to race to catch their lover would be shot dead on the spot.

Added DiffLines:

* When author Hillare Belloc learned that the woman he was in love with was considering becoming a nun, he ''walked and hitchhiked across most of the United States'' to try to talk her out of it. Needless to say, she accepted and they were engaged.

* Downplayed in ''Film/WhenHarryMetSally'', when we think he's running to be able to kiss her at midnight. Then he says he just couldn't stand being apart from her any longer than he had to.

* ''{{Manhattan}}'': In which Isaac has to ''run'' across Manhattan to meet up with Tracy before she leaves for London. It's also a subversion in that Tracy wants to go anyway, and tells him it'll only be 6 months.

* Done in both the ''Manga/CardcaptorSakura'' anime and manga, with Sakura racing to give Syaoran a homemade teddy bear before he leaves for Hong Kong. Played with more in the manga, as [[spoiler:Sakura had realized her feelings beforehand, but Syaoran's unannounced departure forced her to run after him, and possibly subverted as Syaoran was leaving in order to sort out residency issues in Hong Kong so he could live in Japan with Sakura permanently.]]

* A platonic [[spoiler: by then]] version happens in the end of the first ''Manga/{{Lady}}'' series. [[spoiler: Main character Lynn Russell/Rin Midorikawa decides to return to her native Japan due to the family conflicts she faces in England, so her friends Arthur and Edward have to make a run to the airport to convince her otherwise.]] In the anime movie, however, this is done by [[spoiler: her father George and her half-sister Sarah.]]

* ''Manga/{{Evangelion 303}}'': In chapter 13 [[DespairEventHorizon Asuka's depression hit rock-bottom]]. Thinking that everyone would be better off without her and feeling ashamed of abusing [[LoveInterests Shinji]] for several weeks, she decided to disappear. Having a hunch [[spoiler:that Asuka would go to see her best friend's grave first of all]], Shinji drove hundreds of miles at night, without resting, even though he was not sure that he would find her there. [[spoiler:He found her and he tried to convince her to return. When she refused, he proposed her. She said yes.]]

* ''Film/SpiderMan2'': MJ leaves John Jameson at the altar and runs across Central Park and what is, [[BigApplesauce presumably several blocks downtown]] [St. Patrick's Cathedral to the Battery is oh, probably 60 blocks, even as the web slings] in her wedding dress to turn up at Peter's door.

* The final ten minutes of ''Series/QueerAsFolk'', in what probably cements [[VictoriousChildhoodFriend Vince]] and [[JerkassWoobie Stuart]] as the official romance of the series. Their [[VitriolicBestBuds tempestuous]] [[BelligerentSexualTension relationship]] finally convinced Stuart to split for London, and Vince being too delusional or too stubborn to make an effort to stop what would have undoubtedly spelled the end of their time together, the situation leads to Stuart actually packing up and on being the verge of leaving town. However, [[ShipperOnDeck Vince's mom]] pulls all the stops in an effort to get Vince to Stuart before he leaves, and they end up reuniting and reconciling moments before Stuart drives off (and [[spoiler: leaving town together, apparently for good.]])

* Was lampshaded on MadMen in "The Suitcase" where Peggy laments (after arguing on the phone with her boyfriend Mark while telling him she's kept working in the office and will miss her birthday dinner) that "I think Mark broke up with me", Don Draper deadpans "Go. Go run to him, like in the movies" and she [[RomanticFalseLead doesn't]].

* Music/KagerouProject: ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hsc4LW-la-M Headphone Actor]]'' upon first viewing appears to be about Takane running to escape the apocalypse. The end of her second ImageSong, ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eVupc6DYKaI Yuukei Yestderday]]'' makes it clear that the former song is a metaphor for this trope. In truth, Haruka wasn't going anywhere; [[{{Tsundere}} Takane was just too thick-headed to admit her feelings]]; in this instance [[spoiler:Takane was trying to run to the hospital because Haruka was ''dying'' from his illness. She herself dies before she can make it.]]
