When they ask for a "running head", they are using publisher terminology for what most word processing software refer to as a "header" or "page header." [Thank you @oweng.]

You can read the LibreOffice User Guides, in particular LibreOffice Writer Guide, Chapter 4 "Formatting Pages" and LibreOffice Calc Guide, Chapter 4 "Using Styles and Templates", the sections corresponding to setting up headers and footers.

As for the APA head format, I do not know anything about it, but I found this link: Running Head Format for APA Style Papers.

@oweng, thank you, I meant I do not know anything about the APA Style...

@carnendil, that was not a criticism on your answer (which is correct, and which I marked up), but rather just a bit more information for others. I should have been clearer :-)

@oweng, I have added your comment in my answer. Thank you again. It might have been the source of confusion to the OP or might confuse others in the future.

It's super easy actually,

Add your headers as you normally would

go to Format > Page > Header and you should see a check-box that says Same content on first page UN-check that box and you will be able to edit your first page without the other ones changing!
