Question Runners...responsibilities

I recently had the opportunity to race on a boat with "runners'/ This was my first ecperience with runners. I was given the assignment of handling the runners, To make a long story short, we were over early and the skipper gybed as I was sitting near the rail, not expecting the quick gybe. It got pretty heated in the cockpit area as we went quickly back to make ourselves clear and he then obviously gybed back. Normally how many people should be on runners at the start and what is proper procedure to do with the "lazy" runner. Leave it loose near the winch, give it a wrap, what is common procedure....?

New guy....
