There were 60 participants on Saturday 22 September at the 177th Castlemaine parkrun. Run Director Gary Schurr welcomed everyone, including four people undertaking their first parkrun anywhere ever, and also visitors from parkruns at Bendigo, Westerfolds, Coburg and Studley. He also presented two milestone awards.
George Targett completed his 50th parkrun on the day, and is among the first Castlemaine junior runners to reach this milestone. George has undertaken all of his runs at the Castlemaine course, is regularly the first male junior finisher and has reduced his personal best (PBs) on 14 occasions by a total of more than 13 minutes.
Peter Hill also completed his 50run milestone. Peter has undertaken 47 of his runs at Castlemaine, achieved 7 PBs, volunteered seven times and also holds the course record for the male 70-74 age group. On most weeks, he has the highest male age-graded result.
Both George and Peter received a certificate, and were warmly cheered down the Tunnel of Love.
Nine parkrunners achieved a PB this week for our 5km course, with congratulations to Julie Hough (by 8s), Carmen Pace (by 15s), Travis Barnes (his 8th in the past 9 runs – this time by 17s), Peter Reade (by 46s), Anna de Vrieze and Erika Calitz-Nunn (both by 47s), Joanne Male and Carmen Pace (both by 108s) and Tai Kerin (by 182s).
Anna de Vrieze flew around the course. In addition to her PB, she was first female finisher (20:12) and had the highest female age-graded result (73.43%). Anna’s finishing time also set a new record in the female 20-24 age-group, eclipsing the previous mark by 5s – which had stood for almost 3 years. This was also the first new record in any age-category in four months! She was followed by visitor Emily Cooper (21:47) and local Deb Hall (27:08).
Bendigo-parkrunner Jarrod Threlfall (19:31) was the first male finisher, followed soon after by Patrick Smith (19:37). David Wilson was the third male finisher (20:00) and George Targett was the first junior male finisher (23:12). Peter Hill had the highest male age-graded result (70.59%).
Well done to everyone who took part, and many thanks to the volunteers who worked with Gary to conduct the day’s event, including Andrew Bos, Ronder Clayton, Steve Parson, Raewyn and Tyrone Rice and Michael Farr.
Run Director Jane Harding welcomed 69 participants to the 176th Castlemaine parkrun on Saturday 15 September, including visitors from parkruns at Bendigo and Albert Park. There was also one person undertaking their first parkrun anywhere.
Lachie Hough completed his 50th parkrun on the day, although this accidentally slipped passed the notice of the designated certificate laminator from the event team! Next week he’ll be properly acknowledged. Lachie has undertaken all of his runs at the Castlemaine course, has achieved seven personal bests (PBs) and has also volunteered 15 times. Congratulations Lachie.
Eleven parkrunners achieved a personal best this week for our 5km course, with congratulations to Dianne Cox (by 31 seconds), Deb Hall (by 48s), Peter Reade (by 50s), Lynette Hills (by 52s), William Haslam, Joanne Male and Dave Petrusma (all by 62s), Simon Duff (by 65s), Lorraine Lucas (by 72s), Jo Willen (by 124s) and Joel Thomas (by 259s).
Dianne Cox continued her amazing run of hot form, being the first female finisher (24:22) in addition to her PB. She also had the highest female age-graded result (78.52%), which moves her into 20th place on the all-time list. She was followed by visitor Kate Molloy (26:17) and Deb Hall (26:58).
Andrew Bos (19:20) was the first male finisher, and also had the highest male age-graded result (71.64%). Junior George Targett (22:25) was the second male finisher, followed soon after by Peter Reade (22:49).
Well done to everyone who took part, and many thanks to the volunteers who worked with Jane to conduct the day’s event, including Travis Barnes, Simon Gearing, Vicki Kerin, Shirlene Nevill and Tyrone Rice.
