Running hand is a script form completely opposite to Round hand scripts. Running hand is a subtype of handwriting but the pen is not lifted from the page until the sentence is completed. Roundhand is a deliberate style where, in order to be true, the pen MUST be lifted after each stroke or letter to continue with consistency. It is not possible to combine the two without sacrifices to both forms.

I think that there are different types of "Running Hand" and the term is sometimes a synonym for cursive (cursive comes from the latin for running). The type I am talking is the one described here:https://herreputationforaccomplishment.wordpress.com/2015/06/02/writing-a-running-hand/
