Where you lead runners depends a bit on how much force is involved and whether the place they're attached is strong enough for it. On some boats the toerail could pull right off. On others, it's not going anywhere. What are you sailing? On our fractionally rigged J/36 we only rig the runners when the wind pipes up above 25. They lead to cars on the toerail.
