Intake runners and superchargers?

Hey everyone,

I'm trying to understand this... What roll do intake runners play in a supercharged engine? Take a look at this picture, its a Chevy intake manifold for a Whipple supercharger using a Carburetor.

It looks like it has almost no intake runners? Also the blower outlet sits at the extreme front of the manifold, wouldn't there be fuel distribution problems before the boost built up?
