I am looking for some exercise to do at home without needing any weights. I only have access to a medicine ball.
I'm looking for exercises that complement and will help me with running. Like box jumps, step ups, etc.

It depends on your goal as a runner; are you looking to compete? Or perhaps you are just looking to maintain good cardiovascular fitness, or lose weight?
What is necessary for all runners, regardless of your overall goal is to protect yourself against potential injury. A study by Runner's World put the annual injury rate for runners at 66%. The most common injuries for runners are all caused to some degree by weak hips. You could do a illiotibial band rehab routine after your run to mitigate this.
You should also consider doing core strengthening exercises, as having a strong core is what allows the rest of your body to exert power effectively, and it will also protect you from injury. Straightforward bodyweight exercises good for strengthening your core include lunges, planks, pistol squats, push-ups, and side planks,
