Castlemaine Parkrun Report #166 – 7th July 2018

While temperatures at Castlemaine parkrun vary from below freezing to uncomfortably warm, it’s been almost two years since there was noteworthy rainfall during an event.  This drought was broken on Saturday 7th July, with a solid downpour commencing about one minute before start time, and continuing on and off for the next hour.  However, parkrunners are a hardy bunch, and 60 participants completed the 5km course with smiles on their faces and a spring in their step.

In the pre-run briefing, Run Director Chris Timewell welcomed everyone, including five people undertaking their first parkrun anywhere ever, and also visitors from parkrun events at Rocks Riverside (Qld), Chelsea Bicentennial and Mullum Mullum.  One of the first timers, Maryanne Murdoch, was the 1500th different person to complete the Castlemaine course.  Chris also acknowledged the 15 or so local parkrunners who completed at the Gold Coast running festival during the previous weekend, with particular recognition to Raewyn Rice and Donna Petrusma who completed their first ever full marathon.

On a course that was a little bit muddy underfoot, there were only four parkrunners able to achieve personal bests (PB) this week, with congratulations to Gavin Vanstone (by 11 seconds), Deb Hall (by 34s), Warrick Clarke (by 53s) and Elizabeth Livingstone (by 198s).

Karina Taylor was the first female finisher (23 minutes 58 seconds) and also had the highest female age-graded result (71.88%).  She was followed by two relatively new local parkrunners, Iris McGregor (26:18) and Deb Hall (28:21).

For the second consecutive week, Jason Hull was the first male finisher (20:36).  He was closely followed by junior parkrunner Zedekiah Marshall (20:47).  Glen Taylor (21:12) was the third male finisher and had the highest male age-graded result (69.63%).

Well done to everyone who took part, and many thanks to the volunteers who worked with Chris to conduct the day’s event, including Lauren Barker, Travis Barnes, Donna and Dave Petrusma and Anita Volkert.


Castlemaine Parkrun Report #165 – 30 June 2018

With a large contingent up at the Gold Coast Marathon festival, and the school holidays underway, Castlemaine Parkrun was reduced to 36 participants on Saturday 30th June, not including the ever excellent volunteer crew.  Run Director Libby Mayes welcomed everyone, including visitors from parkruns in Warragul, Bendigo and Maribyrnong, and also one person undertaking their first parkrun ever anywhere.

Five parkrunners achieved personal bests (PB), with congratulations to Cameron King (by 9s), Deb Hall (by 20s), Kathy Cattanagh (by 59s), Judi Miles (by 118s) and Travis Barnes (by 163s).

Locals Lauren Barker (23 minutes 24 seconds) and Karina Taylor were the first two female finishers.  Dianne Cox (26:37) was the third female finisher and also had the highest female age-graded result (71.88%).

Jason Hull had a great return to parkrun, being the first male finisher (20:16).  He was followed by Warragul visitor Rob Zweirlein (20:50), who also had the highest male age-graded result (73.12%).  Patrick Smith (21:00) was the third male finisher.

Well done to everyone who took part, and many thanks to the volunteers who worked with Libby to conduct the day’s event, including Christine Barker, Christine Christie, Warrick Clarke, Michael Farr and Steve Harris.


Castlemaine Parkrun Report #164 – 23 June 2018

An icy cold morning failed to deter 46 hardy Castlemaine Parkrunners on Saturday 23rd June.  Run Director Richard Mayes welcomed the participants, including visitors from parkruns in Shepparton and Armidale (NSW).  There were also two participants undertaking their first parkrun ever.

Nine parkrunners achieved personal bests (PB), with congratulations to Gabrielle Smith and John Willis (both by 13s), Patrick Smith (by 17s), Paul Gilders (his sixth in a row, this time by 19s), Louise Layne (by 20s), Dianne Cox (by 26s), Sean Grant (by 27s), Lynette Hills (by 47s), and Emma Renfrey (by 125s).

Karina Taylor was the first female finisher (24:12).  She was followed by Dianne Cox (25:35), who had a big morning with her PB and the highest female age-graded result (74.79%).  Gabrielle Smith (27:50) was the third female finisher.

Patrick Smith added to his PB with being the first male finisher (18:51).  He was followed by Luke Watt (20:50) and Glen Taylor (21:02).  Glen also had the highest male age-graded result (70.68%).

Well done to everyone who took part, and many thanks to the volunteers who worked with Richard to conduct the day’s event, including Tricia Barrett, Kerryn Healy, Luke Kneebone, Maree Matheson, Raewyn Rice and Sophie Mayes.
