I am struggling with injuty at the moment with tight hamstrings. Should I still be running?. Tightness moves from bum area to inside of leg to just above knee. I have missed races and training is nearly to nothing

Are you sure it's hamstrings? A pulled/strained/tight hamstring normally manifests itself more in the middle of the muscle at some height (for me there's a spot in the middle of my right hamstring, and on both sides at the insertion points into the pelvis at the bottom of your glutes).

If it's inside thigh, that could be adductor muscles.

To answer your question, you need to decide if it's a niggle that will go away and you can run through, whether you just need to rest or whether it's more serious and you need to see a physio.
