Runners help local community

WHILE the Pentath-run might be about sport and fitness, it is also about helping the community.

This weekend, Olympian Steve Moneghetti will headline hundreds of visitors to town for the 10th anniversary Pentath-run.

The reality is the weekend will double as a fundraising effort to help worthy community organisations.

Pentath-run committee member Margaret Trahair said charities supported in the past year include the women's refuge, St Vincent de Paul and two donations to the Endeavour Foundation.

"We raise money each year for charity," she said.

The most recent donation was $1000 to St Vincent de Paul. Trahair said nomination numbers were still rising to record levels.

Entries can be made at http://www.pentath.run.com, from 6pm Friday at WIRAC and then before each event at the weekend.

Organisers ask that nominations on the day be more than 30 minutes before start.

Moneghetti is one of 165 runners who have nominated so far for all five legs.

Program

Saturday 7am 21.1km half marathon WIRAC to Yangan, noon 4.6km cross country at Morgan Park, 3pm 5km at Sandy Creek.

Sunday 7.15am, ascent from Killarney to Queen Mary Falls, 11.30pm Criterium in Palmerin St.
