You have in the ODB "/Runinfo/Start time binary" which is measured in seconds since 
1970. By subtracting this from the current time, you get the running time.

"Start time binary" and "Stop time binary" are in seconds since the 1970 in UTC, so no 
time zone involved there. The ASCII versions of the start/stop time are derived from 
the binary time using the server's local time zone. If you want to display them in a 
different time zone, you have to create a custom page and convert it to another time 
zone using JavaScript like

var d = new Date(start_time_binary);
