Welcome to the Christmas edition of parkrun weekly news. Yet again it was a day of celebrations, many family and friends from near and far coming to join in the fun and even a few glimpses of the ever elusive Santa and Mrs Claus.


New Years Day double

We have great pleasure in announcing that Ballarat parkrun is working with Castlemaine parkrun to provide the opportunity to complete a New Years Day double.

Ballarat will start at 7.30am to allow our athletes to travel to Castlemaine where the parkrun will be starting at 9.30am.
Our mates from Bendigo are planning to meet us there too so look out Castlemaine 🙂

It was a fun event in 2017 and we would love you to join us too but Don’t forget your barcode.

New Years Day double (take 2)

The awesome New Year Double parkrun is back for 2018. Run or walk Bendigo parkrun at 8am, hop in the car and make your way to Castlemaine parkrun for an extra special only day of the year second parkrun starting at a special time of 9.30am. Our friends in the other lesser known Goldfields town of Ballarat will also be meeting us in Castlemaine after a 7.30am start for them.

Hang about in the lovely Botanical Gardens of Castlemaine where a coffee truck will be awaiting and catch up with your parkrun mates. Topics of conversation may include who has the best Goldfields town or which Goldfields parkrun has the best parkrun dogs but hopefully not who left their barcode at home #DFYB #loveparkrun
