I'm going to install 1x4 runners at the bottom of joists in my basement to support 12/3 cable, rather than drill holes. How often do I need to support it along the runner?

At intervals no more than 4.5 foot apart and within 1 foot of any box with a clamp or connector. The cable would need to be secured within 8" if there is no clamp.
