I was recently trying to optimise a character for the fastest movement possible in one turn. After looking around, I found this vampire power:

Unfettered Hunger

Vampire Attack 5

Daily; Implement, Shadow

Attack: Dexterity vs Reflex

Hit: 2d10 + Dex Modifier Damage.

Miss: Half damage.

Effect: Until the end of the encounter, you gain a + 2 power bonus to attack rolls and a +4 power bonus to damage rolls, you can shift up to your speed as a move action, and you cannot spend healing,surges to regain hit points.

I was wondering if it would be possible for the PC to run this movement, despite this being a shift action.

Also, if anyone has any other ideas for speeding up my character, it would be appreciated.

No.

You get your base speed from this, if you had something that increased your speed (like say the Eager Advance feat), that would let you shift your speed.

Running is a specific type of move action that lets you move up to your speed +2, it does not increase your speed.

For ideas on how to increase your base speed, you can look at the pixie I built here

Note: anything that changes your speed, affects this, so if you're slowed, you shift 2, not your normal base speed.
