I have no idea what the \setTrue{runhead} stuff in the above is, so
won't mess with it.  But the way to define a foot with the number in the
middle would be this:

\def\@oddfoot{\normalfont\normalsize\hfil\thepage\hfil}

So try this:

\def\ps at myheadings{\ps at empty \vspace{1in}
\def\@oddfoot{\normalfont\normalsize\hfil\thepage\hfil}
\def\@evenfoot{\normalfont\normalsize\hfil\thepage\hfil}
\let\@mkboth\markboth
}

Or something like it.  It occurs to me that any class that has defined
something like \setTrue{runhead} might want a \setTrue{runfoot} in a
footer, so if this doesn't work, try something like that in the
\@oddfoot definition.
