Consider not breaking up the actions in that way. Although the character throws a javelin, that does not mean there has to be a Rangled Combat (Javelin) roll. Similarly, just because a character throws two javelins does not mean there should be two Ranged Combat (Javelin) rolls.

If the important thing about those tactics is that the Run on Treetops is moving her to an advantageous position, it is an attack using Run on Treetops, not an attack using Ranged Combat (Javelin).
