Castlemaine Parkrun Report #136 – 16 December 2017

Matheson is the word at Parkrun

The Matheson clan were present in force at the 136th Castlemaine Parkrun on Saturday 16 December.  Maree Matheson became the latest local parkrunner to reach the 100-run milestone – and she had her children and grandchildren there to celebrate and run the 5km course with her.  Maree was presented with the superhero cape, and expressed her gratitude for this weekly event that she enjoys so much.  Starting from the first event in May 2015. Maree has achieved 7 personal bests (PBs), has volunteered 8 times, undertook 97 of her 100 runs at Castlemaine, was parkrunner of the month in November 2015 and has the fourth fastest time in her age group.  Congratulations Maree.

Run Director Chris Timewell also welcomed another 76 enthusiastic joggers, which included three people undertaking their first parkrun ever anywhere, and also visitors from many other parkruns (Bendigo, Ballarat, Coburg, and Bradford in the UK).

The conditions were cool at the start, but then quickly heated up as the sun rose higher in the sky.  Despite this challenge, seven people rang the PB bell including Tony di Lorenzo (by 6 seconds), Melissa Matheson (by 22s), Michelle Scott (by 48s), Jye Matheson (by 93s), Michael Lofthouse (by 95s), Bessie Faircloth (by 103s) and Jennifer Larson (by 104s).  For Bessie, she’s now reduced her PB by over 17 minutes in the past 12 months.

Undertaking her first parkrun at the Castlemaine course, parkrunner Charlotte Streat had a big morning, being first female finisher overall in 22 minutes 56 seconds, first junior female finisher and also having the highest female age-graded result (72.53%). She was followed by the ever-consistent Lauren Barker (23.56) and Karina Taylor (24.07).

First male finisher Carel Pluis put in a huge sprint finish to achieve a time of 19 minutes 32 seconds.  He was followed by Jason Hull (20.01) and a resurgent Richard Mayes (20.29).  Zedekiah Marshall was the first junior male finisher (21.53).  The age-graded result for both Carel Pluis (78.67%) and Ian Fookes (79.46%) were within the top 20 of all time for the Castlemaine course.

Well done to everyone who took part, and many thanks to the volunteers who assisted Chris to organise the day’s run, including Michael Farr, Nathan Rice, Jane Harding, Dave Petrusma, Gary Schurr, Richard Mayes and Karina Taylor.

 

Castlemaine Parkrun Report #135 – 9 December 2017

Awards for Minster and Hill at Parkrun

Run Director Karina Taylor welcomed 68 enthusiastic joggers to the 135th Castlemaine Parkrun on Saturday 9 December.  This included two people undertaking their first parkrun ever anywhere, and also visitors from other parkruns located nearby (Bendigo) and afar (Bradford in the United Kingdom).

Before heading off on the weekly 5km event, there were special presentations.  Lisa Minster was provided with the superhero cape, as she had reached her 100-run milestone on this day.  Lisa has been a regular since the second Castlemaine parkrun in late May 2015.  She has volunteered, achieved 10 personal bests (PBs), and is a humble and friendly participant at all times.  Mai Hill was also recognized as the Castlemaine Parkrunner of the Month.  During November 2017, the Mai volunteered once, ran consistently well, set a new PB and also was the first female finisher on one occasion.  Both were cheered down the Tunnel of Love to the starting line.

The conditions were good for a run, with eight people ringing the PB bell including Tim Solly (by 9s), Julie Hough (by 16s), Donna Petrusma (by 22s), Patricia Barrett (by 25s), Cedella Marshall (by 25s), Jennifer Larson (by 39s), Jack Maddern (by 97s) and Sophie Every (by an impressive 378s).

Undertaking her first parkrun at the Castlemaine course, Bendigo-based Anna de Vrieze ran very well to be first female finisher in 20 minutes 59 seconds.  Anna also had the highest female age-graded result on the day (70.61%). She was followed by an in-form Lauren Barker (23.06) and Jodi Oakman (24.41). Bessie Faircloth was the first junior female finisher (33.50).

Returning for his second parkrun, Andrew Bos was the first male finisher (19.30).  He was followed by the ever-consistent Jason Hull (20.15).  Third male finisher, Ray Schroeder (21.35) also had the highest male age-graded result on the day (74.98%). Jack Maddern’s return to the course saw him as the first junior male finisher (23.36).

Well done to everyone who took part, and many thanks to the volunteers who assisted Karina to organise the day’s run, including Ronder Clayton, Ron Wescott, Cheryl Taylor and Chris Timewell.

 

Castlemaine Parkrun Report 134 – 2 December 2017

Mitten Milestone at Parkrun

Thankfully the predicted deluge failed to reach expectations, and Castlemaine Parkrun was able to proceed as per normal on the morning of Saturday 2 December.  Just a few extra puddles to skip over, and all undertaken in cool, calm and rain-free conditions.

Before the commencement of this free weekly community event, Run Director Chris Timewell presented Angela Mitten with a certificate commemorating her 100-run milestone.  She also was able to wear the Superhero ‘100’ cape for the duration of her 5km run.  Angela has been a regular since the very first Castlemaine parkrun in May 2015.  She has volunteered 11 times along the way, achieved 7 personal bests (PBs), and is a happy, supportive contributor and participant at all times.  She was warmly cheered as she soared down the Tunnel of Love.

Among the 53 participants on the day were three people undertaking their first parkrun ever anywhere and also visitors from parkruns at Cranbourne and Whitley Bay (in northern England!).

The soggy condition of the track wasn’t ideal for PBs.  Despite this, three people managed to achieve this special feat, including Bessie Faircloth (for the fourth week in a row – by 1 second), Stacey Solly (by 15 s) and Tim Solly (by 24s).

Undertaking her first parkrun anywhere, Amy Addinsall was the first female finisher in a time of 25 minutes 36 seconds.  She was followed by Carly McGinniskin (26:37) and Raewyn Rice (28.57).  Alison Radford had the highest female age-graded result (65.79%).  Once again, Bessie Faircloth was the first junior female finisher (30.59).

Also undertaking his first parkrun anywhere, Andrew Bos was the first male finisher (19.14), and he also had the highest male age-graded result on the day (71.49%).  Andrew was followed by Beau Cook (19.36) and UK-visitor Martin Floyd (19.45).  Zedekiah Marshall was the first junior male finisher (21.19).

Well done to everyone who took part, and many thanks to the volunteers who assisted Chris to organise the day’s run, including Karina and Glen Taylor, and Judy and Peter Hill.
