Add Run Dialog to Applications menu in GNOME

How can I add a run dialog to the bottom of the Applications menu or maybe in the systems menu? I can hit ALT+F something to bring it up, but sometimes like to access it from menu. I know how to edit the menu in alacarte, but I don't know any command line to run to launch the GNOME run dialog.

I'm not sure about adding the run command to the applications menu, but have you tried the "deskbar: all in one action bar"? it sits in the panel, and you can use it to run commands, get dictionary definitions etc
