In this paper, joint distributions of number of success runs of length k and number of failure runs of length k' are obtained by using combinatorial techniques including lattice path approach under Pólya-Eggenberger model. Some of its particular cases, for different values of the parameters, are derived. Sooner and later waiting time problems and joint distributions of number of success runs of various types until first occurrence of consecutive success runs of specified length under the model are obtained. The sooner and later waiting time problems for Bernoulli trials (see Ebneshahrashoob and Sobel ) and joint distributions of the type discussed by Uchiada and Aki  are shown as particular cases. Assuming Ln and Sn to be the lengths of longest and smallest success runs, respectively, in a sample of size n drawn by Pólya-Eggenberger sampling scheme, the joint distributions of Ln and Sn as well as distribution of M=max(Ln,Fn)n, where Fn is the length of longest failure run, are also obtained.
