A flexible crampon IS what you want for trail runners. I don't have the g12's, but I'm pretty sure they come standard with a rigid steel connector bar, which won't work well with your runners (shoes will bend, crampons won't = shoes come out of crampons). You'll want these: http://www.buy.com/prod/grivel-grivel-flex-plate-for-g10-g12-g14-air-tech-crampon-add-on-fall/q/sellerid/31012571/loc/68687/217493154.html for use with soft sole shoes.
Ideally, you'd want the semi rigid new-matics for use with the boots, and a lightweight full strap for use with the trail runners (grivel air tech light, black diamond neve strap, stubai's).

It sounds like using the classic bindings with trail runners isn't a great fit, so I think I'll probably go for the new-matics and figure out a different solution for when I'm backpacking light later in the season when there is still patches of snow/ice.
