Is friction helpful to runners on a sledge?

Friction is actually not helpful to runners on a sledge, as it can slow down the motion of the sledge. To make the sledge move faster or smoother, reducing friction between the runners and the surface they are sliding on would be more beneficial. Lubricants or smoother surfaces can help decrease friction and improve the performance of runners on a sledge.

What happens when you are sledging down a snowy slope and you run into a grass path What would happen to the speed of the sledge and why?

The coefficient of friction for sledge runners on grass is much higher than on ice, so there will be a large and sudden increase in the retarding force. The deceleration will be this force divided by the total mass. If the rider doesn't hang on he/she will tend to continue at the latest velocity (ie thrown forward off the sledge).
