Romsey Road Runners holds a Club Pentathlon competition each year, with the winners announced at the annual Awards Night. Scoring for this is based on a points system for men’s and women’s performances in 5 of the 6 race distances that are officially recognised and permitted; 5km, 5 miles, 10km, 10 miles, half marathon and marathon, within the UK. The 5k club handicap time trial race is included. Members are allocated points for their best time during the competition year over each distance (40 points for fastest, then 37, 34, 32, 30, 29 and then reducing by 1 point for each position). The Pentathlon Award can only be awarded to a first claim member. The competition year runs from 1 October to 30 September.

Pentathlon Veterans Trophy – This is an extension of the Pentathlon competition but is a single award for men and women that are aged 50 or over on 1 October in the year of the competition.
