If you want it to last generations,nail or screw the runner in, because eventually it will wear and need to be replaced. Note that if the drawer sides are of softer wood than the runners, then the bottoms (and maybe tops) of the drawer sides will wear faster and need to be replaced first. If someone in the future can easily disassemble the drawer, then the worn edges can be planed straight and new edges glued on. This might be easier than replacing the runners, depending on the construction methods and choice of glues.
