Just another related expression, which seems quite similar to the Portuguese "correr o risco"

To run the risk (of doing something)

  • If you publish those classified documents, you run the risk of pissing off the American government. Think about it.
  • When you speed, you run the risk of getting into an accident.
  • If you drink and drive, you run the risk of being pulled over by the cops.
After writing these examples, I noticed it seems like the expression is used a lot in conditional contexts "if / when". Hmm. Interesting.

Hope this helps a bit!
