I may be wrong but running and combat pace are seperate things.. I dont think in any running stance you can have a raised weapon. I think that is designed for realism.. i think

In combat pace your weapon is by default in a ready-to-fire position.

If you then press "ToggleRaiseWeapon" it'll go to a muzzle averted position and you're stuck there. Unless you press "Fire" which will bring it up again.

And pressing "Fire" to raise the weapon back while moving in Combat pace will cause a temporary interruption in the movement of the character.
