Is that a parallel structure in GMAT land:

Humans can walk, jump, run, covering many miles, and swim.

Or do we have to remove the modifying phrase “covering many miles" to make the sentence correct?

IMO, "Humans can walk, jump, run, covering many miles, and swim" is corretly parallel.

“Covering many miles” is a modifying phrase and modifies the verb “run”.

thanks for correcting.

Humans can walk, jump, run, covering many miles, and swim.

is the example above (with a modifying phrase) a parallel structure or the modifying phrase makes the sentence wrong?

In terms of gmat grammer, imo, the sentence is correct and parallel.
