You only need to run the engine for the flush IF you are doing it with a thermostat in. If you have the Tstat out then you can get water to flow to the heater core. If it is in then you need to get the tstat warm enough to open and let the old coolant and new water flow out. We used to hose flush with the top radiator hose off, engine running, all the time when I worked in the garage. We just kept the radiator full with clean water and ran until the water coming out of the top hose was clear. Then drained the radiator and filled it with coolant.

Pikey's suggestion will work for you. The difference is that he is opening the system at the top, this keeps the engine full of coolant, let's the water get hot, lets the t-stat open. You need to keep water in the engine, or it will overheat.
