Hi John,

 I would say 'courir dans les escaliers' is how you would describe what children do when they are messing about on the stairs , to say to run down the stairs you would have to say -

Descendre les escaliers en courant

and you could use

'monter ....' to say running up the stairs.

Hope this helps!
