The closest sense of that use would be something along the lines of "at the beginning of a football match both teams will run onto the field." But I can't think of a common use for "run on a field,"

It makes sense to "run in" a field with tall grass but if a field is mowed it is essentially running on a surface IMHO. The expression is a lot more common with "in a field". But there are plenty of results in English books for "run on a field". And the difference is much closer with "run in the field" vs "run on the field". https://books.google.com/ngrams/graph?content=run+on+a+field%2Crun+in+a+field https://books.google.com/ngrams/graph?content=run+on+the+field%2Crun+in+the+field

Why not camp? It's listed in translations.
