Jogging is one exercise to increase height that you can't miss out if you are desperate about making your legs longer. Jogging helps you to grow your leg bones naturally and makes them stronger. Jogging works like magic to increase your height, especially when practice it during or just after puberty.Source(s): https://vapehousedubai.com/

No running will not make you taller

No. Nothing will naturally increase your height beyond the limit your body is pre-programmed to grow. However, a healthy diet and regular exercise can help ensure you reach your maximum height potential. Illness and malnourishment can cause someone to not reach their max height potential, because they body lacks the nutrients/energy to put toward growth.

No, running doesn't increase or decrease height.

running increased my height 2 inches
- Jogger2425Lv 62 months ago
If you're older, it can contribute to a slight decrease in height. Running is a high impact activity. When running, some of the impact is absorbed by spinal discs. After many years of running, the discs may be slightly compressed.
Comment: I agree with the answer from ".", and I gave it a thumbs up. But, I do know of an exception: There is a medical procedure that can increase the length of bones. It involves surgically breaking the bones, which is a huge turn-off for me.
