Growing Strawberries in a Barrel

I am trying to grow strawberries in a barrel. The plants are doing well but the runner are touching the ground. What do I do with them?

I did plant strawberries on the ground and they crept all over.

Set small pots at the base of the barrel and set the "daughters" in them. They will eventually root and be new plants and then you can plant them where ever you want.
