To followup (now that I'm on an actual computer), it wouldn't be against code (NEC typically) to run the wires that way, but it would certainly be contrary to the established standards.

Find yourself a local electrical distributor (Greybar for example) and buy some Wiremold 2300 surface raceway. You haven't said what category of wiring you are installing, but single channel 2300 can handle 9 CAT5e and maintain a 40% fill and you'll still meet the standards.

Your specific jurisdiction could have additional code requirements not covered by the NEC, so YMMV...
