I assume you were using an extended contest for this combat? If so, I'd say that the Vingan's running over the trees were her actions in those rounds of the extended contest. Successes in the dice rolls could mean the broo are outmanoeuvred (they loose APs); failures could mean that the inexperienced Vingan got tangled up in the trees. She would only suffer a lasting effect if she ran out of APs.

See p. 118 of the rulebook. He can improvise a 'Flee from Broo' feat at -10 from his affinity, which he can never cement. He would probably be best off rolling against the normal 6+2 rating, and then spending a HP to get a proper 'Run Fast' ability.
