THE 10th anniversary Warwick Pentath-run at the weekend was the largest to date with athletes flocking to the Southern Downs to take part in the five-race event alongside Olympian Steve Moneghetti.

Race director Rob Stewart said there were 1481 race starters from 594 individual races, with about 165 athletes doing all five races.

"Apart from the frosty white start, the weather really turned it on for us and there were really smooth transitions between events," Mr Stewart said.

"We certainly smashed records, and having Steve Moneghetti was just great. He said he really enjoyed it."

Mr Stewart thanked everyone involved and said the preparations were already under way for next year's Pentath-run.

"We're looking at next year already," Mr Stewart said.

"There are always little things we can tidy up but the event is just growing."

He said athletes were pleased with the event and the positive feedback was rolling in.

"Everyone enjoyed how casual it all was and relaxed which is really good."

"Race managers had a hectic time, but the competitors said it was all well done," Mr Stewart said.

The organising committee thanked all time-keepers, volunteers and helpers who made this year's Pentath-run the best yet.
