Castlemaine parkrun report #205 – 5 April 2019

A new course record at parkrun

At parkruns across the world, the emphasis is always upon participation, health, friendships and community. Walkers, joggers and runners of all ages and abilities are welcomed, and the free weekly 5km event is certainly not a ‘race’. We embrace and celebrate those that achieve personal goals. We can also marvel at those who run like the wind. On Saturday 6 April, we lucky enough to witness such an occasion, with young Elmore-based runner Yazmin Hayes setting a new all-comers female record for the course with a time of 18 minutes 59 seconds.

Yazmin is a highly awarded runner and race-walker at the South Bendigo Athletics Club, and comes from a family of accomplished athletes. Her older sister Teleah holds the female course record at Bendigo parkrun. Yazmin’s time betters the previous female course record at Castlemaine by 4 seconds, which had stood for well over two years. It also sets a new record in the 15-17 female age-category. And her age-graded result of 80.60% is 12th on the all time ladder for Castlemaine (from a total of 1870 people that have completed this course). Congratulations Yazmin, and we hope that you visit again soon.

Earlier on the morning, run director Jane Harding welcomed 82 participants, including two people undertaking their first parkrun ever and visitors from events in Bendigo, Cobram, Chelsea Bicentennial, Balyang Sanctuary, Coburg, Cairns, Ballarat and Victoria’s newest parkrun – Mildura Weir. Jane was ably assisted by volunteers Alison and Tony Radford, Shane and Nicki Renfrey and Ronder Clayton.

Jane presented certificates to two local parkrunners that had reached their 50-milestone; Tony di Lorenzo and Bessie Faircloth. Quiet achiever Tony has had 6 personal bests (PBs) along the way and has also volunteered twice. Junior runner Bessie is a athlete on the rise, achieving 18 PBs along the way to reduce her times by more than 20 minutes since the first effort. She has also contributed as a volunteer.

Thirteen PBs were achieved this week, with congratulations to Claire Nightingale (by 9 seconds), Peter Hill and Kaitlyn Hough (both by 16s), Daniel Oberbillig (by 17s), Malcolm Donnelly (by 21s), Ross Jarvis (by 22s), Henry Faircloth (by 26s), Donna Faircloth (by 29s), Emily Maddern (by 35s), Clementine Nelms (by 46s), Denis Sinnott (by 51s), Raphael Nelms (by 109s) and Marilla Faircloth (by 314s). Peter Hill’s PB (23:47) also set a new course record by 8 seconds in the male 70-74 age category.

After Yazmin, Karina Taylor (23:33) and Kate Cawley (24:24) were the next two female finishers.

The first two male finishers were brothers Adronis Ndihokubwayo (17:38) and Clovis Mpundu (18:21). They were followed by Kyle Lierich (18:34), with Henry Faircloth (22:06) as the first junior male finisher. Visitor Gary Smith had the highest male age-graded result (75.70%).


Castlemaine parkrun report #204 – 30 March 2019

On Saturday 30 March, run director Karina Taylor welcomed 96 participants to Castlemaine parkrun #204 including the four people undertaking their first parkrun ever. There were also many visitors from events across Victoria including Bendigo, Karkarook, Phillip Island, Maribyrnong, Sunbury, Lancefield and Newport Lakes. Karina was ably assisted by volunteers Patricia Barrett, Dave and Donna Petrusma, Nathan Rice and Carmel Ryan.

Despite the coldest conditions for 2019, an abundance of personal bests (PBs) were achieved this week for our 5km course. Congratulations to Rebecca Barnett (by 1 second), Cedella Marshall (by 2s), Michael Farr (both by 14s), Tyrone Rice (by 16s), Adronis Ndihokubwayo (by 19s), Liz Citreon (by 20s), Lucy Phillips (by 26s), Craig Green (by 59s), James Grinter (by 79s), Fiona Turner (by 94s), Thomas Mulholland (by 168s), Julie Timewell (by 188s) and Jonathon Prince and Marilla Faircloth (both by more than 10 minutes).

Lesley Likens (25:05) was the first female, followed by Lucy Phillips (25:21) and Dianne Cox (26:16). Dianne also had the highest female age-graded result (72.84%). Bessie Faircloth was the first junior female finisher (26:39).

Adronis Ndihokubwayo was the first male finisher (17:32), followed by Ricky Holland (19:31). In addition to his PB, Craig Green was the third male finisher (19:49) and had the highest male age-graded result (75.02%). In his first run after the removal of his plaster cast from his arm, Daniel Faircloth was the first junior male finisher (21:49).


Castlemaine parkrun #203 – 23 March 2019

Run director Tony Greaves welcomed 63 participants during a drizzly humid Saturday morning on 23 March, which included three people undertaking their first parkrun ever, plus visitors from events at Bendigo and Champion Lakes (WA). Tony was ably assisted by volunteers Daniel Faircloth, Peter and Judy Hill, Wendy Jarvis and Chris Timewell.

Personal bests were hard to come by, with a mere four achieved and only by relatively small amounts. As per usual, the Faircloths were amongst these, with congratulations to Donna (by 10 seconds), Bessie (by 14s) and Marilla (by28s). Colleen Marchant also achieved a 16 second PB.

Pippa Smith (22min 15sec) was the first female finisher, followed by Clair Brien (24:42) and junior Bessie Faircloth (25:25). Dianne Cox had the highest female age-graded result (72.98%).

Ross Zeibari (20:33) was the first male finisher. Richard Mayes was hot on his heels (20:34) and also had the highest male age-graded result (68.96%). He was followed by Jason Hull (21:04) with George Targett (21:53) as the first junior male finisher.

Parkrun Fact: Participants receive a Groundhog Day e-badge when they have run exactly the same time for two consecutive parkruns at the same course. A model of consistency, local parkrunner Glen Taylor has achieved this statistical anomaly three times.
