    At my old running club - Our Senior Coach had both hips replaced. Could he run ? Yes - Could he run very well? - No & he has a very uneven and awkward gait.
    You may be able to do some limited running - but like a knee replacement - your risking wearing your new joint out quicker than if you don't run
