I ran a lap?

    "I ran a lap" would be "Jeg løb en omgang."

    Just like you say "I ran a lap" or "I ran 2 miles" in English, you can say "I ran a trip" in Danish => "Jeg løb en tur."

    what about "I went to run"? If they anyway don't give a literal translation, then why "i went to run" is wrong???

    It might be hair-splitting, but both "Jeg løb en tur" and "I went for a run" say that the runner made a round, a trip. Going for a run and coming back again.

    Your version sounds like the runner is just running around aimlessly.

    To me it sounds like I would only use that sentence in a specific circumstance.

    Why were you in Philadelphia? Oh, I went to run (in a race).

    I went to run, but he held me back.

    Wouldn't "I went for a jog" sound better?
