Rennen is run
And laufen is walk.

Although I think Rennen is exclusively "run", but Laufen can be either "walk" or "run".

Correct.

Rennen can also mean "race".

Usually rennen is faster than laufen.

Examples:

Ich laufe nach Hause. (I do not take the car.)

Ich renne nach Hause. (I am going really fast.)

Das Baby kann noch nicht laufen.

Die Kinder rennen um die Wette.
