Hi Ron,

"Can anyone tell what a person who's occupation was described as a
"Runner" would do in1980 Auckland NZ."

That's not a typo and you really mean 1980? My guess, based on being a
15-year-old on Auckland's North Shore in that year, is either a
professional athlete or a city courier on foot. Maybe working for
something like a legal firm, who employed their own staff for document
delivery.

Hope this helps. :-)

Kind Regards,
Wendy Howard
