ReSharper comes bundled with NUnit 2.6.4 test runner, which is used by default unless nunit.framework 3.x is referenced, or NUnit 3.x is selected explicitly.

If you need to use NUnit addins for this bundled version, put them in the NUnit2\addins subfolder of the ReSharper installation directory (which is shown for your convenience) and choose how to load them.

NUnit 3.0 Beta 4
When to use NUnit 3 test runner ReSharper installation also includes version 3.0 Beta 4 of the NUnit test runner. By default, it is only used when nunit.framework 3.x is referenced. If necessary, you can opt to use it always or never.
Note that NUnit addins will not be loaded for this test runner.

If you want to use another NUnit version, tick this check box and enter the path to the local NUnit installation into the corresponding text box.
