Depends on the distance. For different people there are different points at which walking becomes more efficient and faster than running. Granted, that's beyond 50km for elite athletes, but still . . .
Even there a walk-run would be faster. Unless you are a porter in Nepal carrying a 50 kilo bag. But even there they would jog downhill. And barefoot too.
But, really, for almost everyone, once you get past 5mph it is much more efficient, and natural, to run.
