Hi all When running long runs of component (Y-Pr-Pb) cable, is there a disadvantage in running 3 runs of rg6?

None whatsoever, do it all the time. Just be sure you use quad RG6 and a high quality connector and you should be fine. Also make each cable the same length to minimize smear and don't anchor them or tie-wrap them on regular intervals as that can setup some weird waveforms. Also tie-wraps should just be snug - not tight.
