Pentath-run director urges voting before Saturday

RUNNING: 'Vote in the next two days' is the word from Warwick Pentath-run race director Neil Burtenshaw in the run up to the 42.2km event at the weekend.

Burtenshaw is encouraging all committee members and participants of the weekend's Pentath-run to vote either today or tomorrow at the Warwick Early Voting Centre, located at 124 Palmerin Street between King and Percy streets.

State manager for the Australian Electoral Commission in Queensland Thomas Ryan said the two best options for people attending or participating in the Pentath-run are to vote on election day before you go or vote before election day at the Warwick Early Voting Centre.

"Early voting centres will remain open until 6pm on Friday, May 17, for those who are eligible to cast an early ballot," Mr Ryan said.

Electors in the seat of Maranoa can cast both their Senate and House of Representatives ballot at the centre, and those voting for other seats in Australia can use the centre to cast an absentee vote.

Until recently, the early voting centre on Palmerin Street was used as a video shop.

The 42.2km event is split into five races. While the overall winners will be determined by results in five races, there will be prizes in each class for each of the five legs of the run.

Nominations welcome at 5-8pm tomorrow at the Warwick Senior Citizens Centre or 30 minutes before individual events at the weekend.

Event times: Saturday: 6.30am: Start of half marathon from YMCA WIRAC to Yangan

11.30am: Start of cross country at the national fitness camp grounds at Leslie Dam

3pm: 5km at Sandy Creek, start outside Darling Downs Hotel

Sunday: 6.45am: Ascent from Killarney to Queen Mary Falls, 10km

11.30am: 1500m in Warwick CBD starting and finishing near Band Rotunda, Leslie Park.
