Raewyn Rice celebrated her 250th Parkrun event on Saturday.
Raewyn Rice celebrated her 250th Parkrun event on Saturday.

It was really only a ‘coolish’ morning that greeted the 75 Castlemaine parkrunners on Saturday – no doubt a taste of what’s to come. But conditions were actually pretty good; witness the 14 PBs gathered among participants. Well done to you all.
The club was privileged to welcome Raewyn Rice to the ‘250 Club’ – this is by any measure a huge personal achievement.
Raewyn is obviously something of a fan of the lovely course given all but 10 of her 250 parkruns have been done at Castlemaine.
The Castlemaine parkrun mob is united in its esteem for this achievement – fabulous effort!
The club celebrated Raewyn’s 250th by having her do a run-through of ‘The Tunnel of Love’, a Castlemaine parkrun tradition. In this she was joined by another stalwart of the Saturday get-together, Donna Petrusma, fresh from her own triumph having completed the Port Macquarie Ironman event the previous weekend.
