According to the Cicada 3301 wiki,

shifting the runes by prime numbers

deciphers to

AN END. WITHIN THE DEEP WEB THERE EXISTS A PAGE THAT HASHES TO: [hex string here]
IT IS THE DUTY OF EUERY PILGRIM TO SEEK OUT THIS PAGE.

Partial Answer:

The text is

writte in Anglo-Saxon Runes

The second hint refers to

(some) prime numbers

Using this we get

ae (ash) j (year) oe (ethel) s (sun) r (ride)
for the first few runes..
You could probably translate all the runes with the alphabet given on the wiki page but I'm running out of time to do so, so feel free to edit / suggest into this post at any given time!

The text is not exactly as @Deusovi posted. The following Ruby source code found here, computes the text to:

  • AN END WItIN tE DEEP WEB tERE EXISTS A PAGE tAT HASHES TO IT IS tE DUTY OF EUERY PILGRIM TO SEEC OUT tIS PAGE

You can download it and run it in the terminal as:

$ ruby raw.rb

However the hash code is still a mystery.

    $\begingroup$ The "t"s are "TH". See the gematria, the first occurrence is shifted back by $17-1=16$ yielding , which is TH. The other spelling differences, every and seek, are there due to the lack of the letters v and k respectively. $\endgroup$ – Jonathan Allan Jul 12 '16 at 13:35
