Castlemaine parkrun is cancelled on 2021-10-30 – Due to current COVID-19 restrictions

COVID-19 Special Update

Two parkrun volunteers wearing facemasks

In the ever-changing landscape of COVID-19 restrictions, we are asking all parkrunners to check their local conditions before leaving for parkrun this weekend.

If you have visited the Greater Brisbane area recently, please have a COVID test as soon as possible.


Restarting parkrun

We are so pleased that parkrun returns to Castlemaine on Saturday under the new Covid-19 framework. This post gives a lot of detail about how we'll operate.
For contact tracing purposes every Victorian parkrun will display a unique QR code each Saturday morning, at various locations at the event. This is shown below. The QR code will also be available on each event’s social media channels and website so you can check in before leaving home, in your car, at or after the event. We ask that all volunteers and participants check in each week. The Department knows that parkrun operates ~8-9am on Saturday so it is ok for you to check in before or after the event. You do not need to bring a phone to parkrun.
We'd also ask all participants to review the codes below for runners, walkers and volunteers. The most important part of these codes is that if you are unwell, please stay at home, do not attend parkrun.
If you are new to parkrun, welcome. We are a free, community wellbeing event. We are not a race. We welcome everyone.
*We will conduct a first-timer briefing at 7.50am at the playground/BBQ area of the Botanic Gardens, so you can find out how it all works.
*We will conduct a short main briefing near the start/finish area at 7.55am. This will contain safety information only and we urge all participants to be present and attentive. We aim to start as close to 8am as we can.
*We will not be celebrating milestones, visitors or making any other announcements during the briefing. This is to minimise the time that people are in close contact. We know these are important parts of our community and will do our best to acknowledge these on social media and in our run report. If you are celebrating a milestone, please feel free to dress up or enjoy your achievement in your own way.
*We will be expanding the start area and encouraging people to spread out. We will also be actively suggesting that people self seed according to finish times. We will have some volunteers to try and help you position yourselves for the start to avoid congestion. This may mean that you take a few extra seconds to cross the start line.
* During the event, participants should walk, jog or run with an aim of making use of all available space and minimizing the amount of time in close proximity to each other. Please respect other park users, be kind and please, no spitting or high-fiving.
* Once you come through the flags at the finish line, the finish token volunteer will drop the token into your hands so there is no contact. Please hold your token and barcode out for the scanners to scan and then drop the token into the bucket provided to be washed. Please remember to bring along your printed barcode; we cannot use or store barcodes in the roladex as we used to do.
*The run director will have the folder with the volunteer roster, feel free to have a talk about volunteering in the coming weeks.
*Most importantly, we want parkrun to be a fun, happy environment. See you there!
