(A) isn't parallel: it compares people ("those who do not...") with running itself.

(C) isn't parallel: it compares "not running" with people ("those running for...")

Remember: The use of WHEN is always wrong in such a situation. It means only at that moment when the comparison is made will people save money … absurd!

(D) and (E) misuse "when". You cannot use "when" unless you are literally talking about the timeframe in which an event takes place. According to (D) and (E), these savings are only realized when someone is actually making the comparison. (i.e., only when someone else is looking at the statistics, comparing them, do these people actually save money!).

(E) is also not parallel: it compares people "non-runners" with running itself.

B: Correct
