IT'S that time of year again, when super fit runners come to town and for those who faint at the thought of running 21km, the guilt sets in about choosing that cream bun over the salad roll.

That's right, it's Pentath Run time.

Race director Robert Stewart said this year's event, which is in it's 10th year, looked to be bigger than ever.

"Last year we had somebody from every state and we're expecting the same again this year," Mr Stewart said.

"We've already had 250 (competitors) sign up and 130 so far who are doing all the five races."

Mr Stewart said the great thing about this event was people could choose to partake in one or five races and go at their own pace while enjoying what the Southern Downs had to offer.

"The different type of countryside we've got makes it easy to put an event on like this," he said.

"Competitors get to visit different areas of the Southern Downs and meet up with people with common interests and enjoy the outdoors."

This year will be glazed with a special surprise in the trophy department.

"Normally we give out five race trophies, but this year all competitors who place second or third will get a trophy," Mr Stewart said.

One Warwick woman who is fit as a fiddle, Lesley La Vaillant, will take part in the two-day event and said she could not wait.

"It's my indulgent hobby - I just love it," Mrs La Vaillant said.

"I'll be doing the half marathon, 21km, and might sign up for the others too."

 

The Pentath Run is on May 26 and 27.
