No.

For my own training, the only time I add other forms of training is when I apply crossfit to sport.

For instance, if I go for a run or hike, I consider it a replacement for a day at the gym.

When I train for a road race, I only run distance once a week in the place of a WOD. I would also throw an interval workout into the week as well. Other then that, I usually don't spend a whole lot of time on specifically training for it because good programming at your gym should accomplish that.

If I was a serious runner, I would look into crossfit endurance like Katharine suggested.
