"Runaway" is the sixth and last studio album by the Dutch rock group Solution. It was released in 1982 on CBS Records.


"Runaway" featured eight songs in a shorter, more direct format than previous recordings. Earlier songs like "Empty Faces" (1977) and "It's Only Just Begun" (1980) had hinted at a more commercial approach, and "Runaway" continued this trend to the extreme. Unlike their previous five albums, it did not include any instrumental tracks.

Jim Capaldi of Traffic co-produced the album with the band. Capaldi also wrote or co-wrote the lyrics to seven of the eight songs.

"Runaway" charted in Holland on 13 March 1982, reaching #14 and spending 9 weeks on the chart. The title track was also a hit when released as a single.

Four songs from "Runaway" appeared on "Solution Live" the following year; this album and the four remaining studio tracks were included on "The Ultimate Collection" in 2006.
