It prefers to walk.

I'm looking at seed catalogs online and I've noticed Temptation Strawberries (last listing on the page) in a few places. They sound lovely and I think I will order some. But what's with this "Plants also produce very few runners" business? I don't expect a strawberry plant to stay in a neat little hole without spreading. It's a strawberry. Isn't the point of a garden to celebrate the way life spreads and grows?

Well, in the picture it's in a hanging pot. Runners would be pretty useless in a hanging pot, because they'd have nowhere to go. So maybe that's it?

Well, okay, probably. But that's not the point. :)

Yeah, I agree. It doesn't make much sense.
