NAIA rules allow a team to use a pinch runner for the catcher whenever the catcher gets on base, but the catcher does not have to leave the game.

The purpose of the "courtesy runner" rule is to speed up the game. No, not because a lot of catchers don't run very fast. The idea is that the catcher can get back to the bench and put on his chest protector and shin guards, so that he is ready to go when the inning is over.
