Agree with the others. I've always gone by this: "If it's in your head, go ahead. If it's in your chest, it's best to rest."

The rule I follow is what Gordon said below. If it is all in the head, you can feel free to work out, but anything below the neck should rest. That is a more dangerous ailment that could morph into something more serious.

Personally I would wait until it has cleared up.

Apart from the fact that it could well turn into something more nasty, I'm pretty sure if you tried to run you would not be able to do your best and probably negate any positive effects you would have gained were you to run while in good health.

The best person to ask would be your doctor, since your "chest cold" could be a an upper respiratory infection.

It's generally advised not to if it's "below the neck". It could potentially morph into pneumonia.
