Ready for Pentath but still time to nominate

NOMINATIONS will be accepted before each event at the 17th annual Warwick Pentath-run on Saturday and Sunday.

The first event will be the half marathon to Yangan which starts in front of WIRAC at 6.30am Saturday.

Many of the Warwick parkrun regulars will compete in some of the Pentath-run events at the weekend so parkrun will not be held this Saturday.

The major change from last year will be the final event on Sunday - the 1500m in the Warwick CBD.

Rather than an up and back Palmerin St course, the course will now be an out (west) and back (east) run each way in Albert St with the finish in front of the band rotunda in Palmerin St.

Runners have the chance on Friday night to register at 5-8pm at the Warwick Senior Citizens Centre in Albert St or at least 30 minutes before any of the events.

Competitors need to be 16 years or older to compete in the half marathon and 10km.

The lowest age category is the under-10 and children in that age group can go in the three shorter races.

The Pentath-run committee received a grant from the Community Benefit Gambling Fund to buy a new start and finish arch as well as two marquees and a wavy air dancer that will blow in the wind next to the registration point at each event.

Event times: Saturday: 6.30am: Start of half marathon 21.1km from YMCA WIRAC to Yangan

11.30am: Start of 4.6km cross country at the National Fitness Camp grounds at Leslie Dam

2.30pm: 5km at Sandy Creek, start and finish outside Darling Downs Hotel

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

11am: 1500m in Warwick CBD starting and finishing near band rotunda, Leslie Park. Main course Albert St between Palmerin and Wantley

(Buses will pick up runners at Yangan and Queen Mary Falls to return to start).
