Over 500 compete in Pentath-run
THE Lazy Runners group from Noosa was one of many groups participating in the weekend Pentath-run on the Southern Downs.
Lazy Runners team member Vicki Williamson said the name Lazy Runners came about because they don't train each day.
“But we do train and go for a coffee at the end,” Ms Williamson said.
The Spirit of Event award was won by Brisbane fisheries economist Lew Williams, 69, who was competing in his sixth Pentath-run.
“I like the challenge,” Mr Williams said.
“I hope the people of Warwick recognise the enormous effort the volunteers put in,” he said.
While he has competed in six of the eight runs, there are only three with a perfect record of five legs in each of the eight Pentath-runs so far.
Ross Leggatt (Warwick), Peter Hall (Gold Coast) and Theresa Fabian (Brisbane) are the veterans from a participation perspective.
The event attracted more than 500 competitors, including two wheelchair racers.
