Where comes the k from, it is juotse (to run)?

"Juosta"

Changes between "s" and "ks" are relatively common. It's mainly to do with pronunciation, and the fact that Finnish isn't a big fan of consonant clusters (if there was a "k" in "juosta" it'd be "juoksta" and that's just too many different consonants right after another).

"juoksu" - a run

"juokseminen" - running
