We need a combined subject here. The plural subject form x, y, and z.
Eliminate answers A and B. Answer E changes the original meaning.
The correct one should be between C and D. Since D missed the plural subject form, choic C is the only one left standing to be the correct answer.

You need to maintain as much parallelism as possible.

Keeping to...
Running as...
and not stopping for...

Answer is C. The term "as well as" makes the sentence unnecessarily awkward.
