Here are some examples:

I always run into old friends when I go to my hometown.

Maria hopes she won’t run into her ex-boyfriend at the concert.

You can run into someone or something (as in an unexpected situation).

If the business runs into financial trouble they will close down.

Keep up the great work and you won’t run into any problems with the First Certificate Exam!

Cheers,

Sarah
