Silly question regarding running

Does running require Los? I know charging does but I read an article somewhere that said you have to have los to run but can't find the rule that says you do or don't

Any help is appreciated and sorry if this has been answered before I searched and didn't see anything.

Run: The model rotates its Facing to a point within its LoS. The model may then make a movement up to its Move Statistic x1.5 in a straight line, directly towards that point. A model may not Run into an Enemy model’s ZoC, into BtB with an Enemy model, or change its Facing after the movement.
So you need LOS to the point you want to run to.

You normally cannot run to somewhere behind your model because you pick the point within line of sight but you can run to the sides?

Assuming that my mode runs in a forest where LOS is reduced to 3", he cannot really go further? Assuming a MV of 4", my model can run 3" or move 2". What if he has Light Footed? it cannot really go further than 4" since he can only run 3" or move 4" without penalty?

Sgnappa.
Yes this is correct. You cannot run to a point you cannot see. 

Thus in a forest that counts as both obscuring and difficult terrain you can walk 2 or run 3
And if you are light footed it is better to walk 4 than run 3. This initially sounds strange, but assume that someone at home in the woods takes some care how he walks because it can be to dangerous to run, dodging trees, small folliage etc means that a full out sprint might be impossible. On the other hand, remember that the walk action is not really walking at your leisure but closer to a jog while still having a weapon in your hand and paying attention to your surroundings. And I think it is quite ok that a sprint in the forest is of little use, while a jogging when at home in the woods is possible.
