RUNNING: There will be plenty of vantage points to watch the Daily News Pentath-run this weekend.

While there are some traffic restrictions for the half marathon and Killarney Ascent, there are many spots to get a great view of the other events.

Watching the runners cross the small bridge across Dalrymple Creek in the Allora Golf Course is one vantage point on Saturday morning and then on Saturday afternoon the best spot could be just west of the bridge over Sandy Creek before the runners do a U turn to head back to the Sandy Creek Hotel on the 5km run.

On Sunday, the same vantage points that have worked down the years to watch town processions will also work for the Pentath-run. Somewhere near the monument could be the best spot in Palmerin St.

There will be many groups dressed up as Super Heroes in the 1500m. Final nominations no later than 30 minutes before each event or at WIRAC from 4.30pm Friday. One group dressed up in their wellness shirts will be 30 runners from Darling Downs Hospital Health Service.
