It depends on the context. For example:

a fugi = a alerga = to run

  • He runs on the street. = El fuge/aleargă pe stradă.

  • He runs to school. = El fuge/aleargă la școală.

a fugi = to run away --- a alerga does not work here

  • He runs away from the scene of the accident. = El fuge de la locul accidentului.

  • He runs away from the cops. = El fuge de polițiști.
