"Miksi et juokse vaikka olemme myöhässä?" should also be correct.

"Why are you not running, even though we are late!" sounds more natural, at least in American English.

"Although" sounds unnatural in this.

what is Juokse called here? How do we know how it is formed?

It is the present tense of 'juosta' used in a negative sentence: juoksen - en juokse, juokset - et juokse, hän juoksee - hän ei juokse and so on.
