    Walking, running, and playing

    Walking, running, and playing sports is/are always more fun with friends! ( I think only "is" reads well here. But in the original formal context it is written "are".)

    Thanks!

    Re: Walking, running, and playing

    There are three different activities listed so "are" is appropriate in that particular sentence.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
