The act of bringing up the centreboard during the run is to reduce the drag on the boat, thereby reducing speed. However, this can compromise speed for stability and so if you are hit by a gust on a run, becareful of an accidental gybe, because you can broach and then capsize.
Depending on the wind strength, I would have it down a portion of the way in strong weather and all the way up in light weather.
