penalty for running from cops?

Underage drinking party, everyone runs. How bad is it if you get caught?

if you run and get caught, you are gonna piss off the cop and get the worst of it. if you just stand there and sort it out, you might just get a ticket - that depends on what state you live in. if your hosting the party, your screwed; expect to spend the next few months in jail

I think it is the same if you run or just stand there and get caught. Run and if you want to but you risk hurting yourself if they tackle you.

There are no universal laws. In my state, obstructing and resisting an officer (without a weapon) is a misdemeanor with a maximum of 6 months in jail. More likely is a day or two.
