I got gitlab running again on my local dev machine and installed the ‘gitlab-ci-multi-runner’ so I can investigate the build runner options.

sudo gitlab-ci-multi-runner register
Running in system-mode.                                                                             
Please enter the gitlab-ci coordinator URL (e.g. https://gitlab.com/ci):
http://x.y.z.w:8987/ci
Please enter the gitlab-ci token for this runner:
xxxxxxxxxx
Please enter the gitlab-ci description for this runner:
runner
Please enter the gitlab-ci tags for this runner (comma separated):
dev
Registering runner... succeeded                     
Please enter the executor: virtualbox, ssh, shell, parallels, docker, docker-ssh:
shell
Runner registered successfully. Feel free to start it, but if it's running already the config should be automatically reloaded

One item to note is that ‘/ci’ must be appended to your gitlabs url

http://x.y.z:port/ci

A nice image
