Visiting runner at front in the pentath-run

AIDAN Hobbs has won the first four races for the men in the 17th annual Warwick Pentath-run.

Hobbs started the weekend with a win in the half marathon to Yangan on Saturday morning and then won the cross country at Leslie Dam, the 5km at Sandy Creek and then on Sunday morning the ascent from Killarney to Queen Mary Falls.

He goes into the final event, the 1500m, from the band rotunda to the western end of Albert St and then return at 11am Sunday, as the leader.

Jannika John was first for the women in the ascent to Queen Mary Falls.

More than 500 athletes have competed in more than one event in the pentath-run.

The weather has been perfect except for a bit of wind.

One runner said it was tough going into the win in the run at Sandy Creek.
