It had been a week of relentless frosts in Castlemaine and Saturday July 10 was no exception. The Castlemaine Botanical Gardens glistened in the sunlight as 50 dedicated runners took part in Castlemaine parkrun number 277 with temperatures as low as minus two.
Perhaps spurred on by the cold air, three participants, namely Jocelyn Pride, David Bennett and Sean Grant, recorded personal best times.
