Crazy Credits: We know about 1 Crazy Credits. One of them reads:
Announcer's voiceover: “The Running Man has been brought to you by: Breakaway Paramilitary Uniforms, Orville Pure Procreation Pills, and Cadre Cola – it hits the spot. Promotional considerations paid for by Elton Flame Throwers, Wainright Electrical Launchers, and Hammand & Gates Chain Saws. Damon Gillian's wardrobe by Chez Antoine, 19th century craftsmanship for the 21st century man. Cadre trooper and studio guard's sidearms provided by Colt Chester, the pistol of patriots. Remember, tickets for the ICS studio tour are always available for class A citizens in good standing. If you'd like to be a contestant on The Running Man, send a self-addressed, stamped envelope to ICS Talent Hunt, care of your local affiliate, and then go out and do something really despicable! I'm Bill Hilgen. Good night and take care!”

Trivia: There are 8 entries in the trivia list – like these:
- Director Woody Allen cast and shot this film twice, without telling the original cast.
- Woody Allen decided to make the film for two main reasons. One was because he had always wanted to do a “chamber piece”, a film with a small cast (there are only six principal characters, and only nine in the entire film) in a single location. The other was for the location itself, Mia Farrow's Connecticut country house, which inspired Woody Allen to write the screenplay with the intention that it would be shot at the house. Unfortunately, by the time Allen finished the screenplay, it was winter and the location was unusable for a movie so firmly planted in September. The entire movie (which takes place in Vermont) was shot on a single soundstage at the Kaufman Astoria Studios in New York.
- According to Mia Farrow's autobiography “What Falls Away”, Woody Allen filmed two or three versions of every scene, took all of the footage into the editing suite, cut the film together and then decided that he hated it. He then rewrote the entire script, fired and recast virtually every major part, and re-filmed the entire thing. This meant that he doubled his production costs and came in well behind schedule. Allen was reportedly keen to do it all again for a third time.
