Are you looking for some EMG data on what fires when in walking vs running gait? The conclusion and point of the study are good, but the EMG data and diagrams are very well explained for those who are seeking a greater understanding of what goes on during walking and running .

The two types of human locomotion are likely to be controlled by shared pattern-generating networks. However, the differences between their kinematics and kinetics imply that corresponding muscle activations may also be quite different. The muscle activation differences between gaits did not simply depend on locomotion speed as shown by recordings during each gait over the same range of speeds (5–9 km/h). The timing shift between walking and running reflects therefore the difference in the relative duration of the stance phase in the walking as well as running gaits.
