       public string RunIDProperty
        {
            get
            {
                return this.RunID;
            }
            set
            {
                int intRunID;
                intRunID = (int) value;  <--This is where I am trying to convert types, but is says I can't implicitly convert type 'string' to 'int'      

                if (value != "" && (intRunID >= 0 && intRunID <= 50))
                {
                    this.RunID = value;
                }
            }
        }

Thanks in advance!

try with this:

    set
    {
         int intRunID;
         if (int.TryParse(value, out intRunID)
         {
                if (intRunID >= 0 && intRunID <= 50)
                       this.RunID = intRunID;
         }
    }

a little typo, missing parenthesis. Should be:

         if (int.TryParse(value, out intRunID))

Convert.ToInt32() will generate an exception if string is not a perfect number.
That's why I don't use int.Parse() instead of int.TyryParse()
