Shoot and Run!!

Don't worry about hurting it in a backpack. The camera body and lens are designed for a fair amount of abuse. If you are like me and want to keep it looking pristine, just be sure to pack it so that it doesn't constantly rub or bump against anything. Nothing uglier than part of the body or lens all shiny and paint worn simply because of poor care habits. You'll want to keep everything firm in the backpack anyways as it is most annoying with something constantly swaying while running. What might be more important, is to select a proper backpack which allows venting and displacement of any sweat which will build up between your body and the backpack.
