Use own runner and save gitlab CI/CD minutes?

I use free membership for my repository and deployments, now I’m running out of free pipeline minutes. I saw in my Repostory/CI/CD/Runners setup and I would like to add my own runner. My question are:

Can I configure and add my own runner?
Can I then use it for pipeline minutes and save ones from gitlab free membership?

My question is maybe stupid but I’m new to gitlab and trying now to implement everything.

Hi, yes you can add your own runner. You will need to disable shared runners on your project though. All the details related to configuring and connecting your own runner you can find here: GitLab Runner | GitLab

There are sections in the docs for registering a runner and configuring a runner. So once you disable shared runners and run your own you should be OK then.
