The mouth needs to be kept closed to ensure that only the nose is used. It is the only way to ensure healthy, stress free breathing while running.

Breathing properly through your nose takes time to practice and learn, but the health and running benefits are well worth it. You will be protecting yourself against viruses and infections, reducing your risk of injuries and protecting your heart. You will also feel more relaxed while running, it will feel easier and because you use less energy for breathing, you will perform better over time.
