Martin Dent Extends His Lead in Runners Shop Series

(Pictured L to R: Martin Dent, Eric Morris, Paul de Jongh)

Martin Dent used event 10 at Bruce Ridge to extend his lead in the 2020-21 Runners Shop Twilight Series. Bruce Ridge terrain and vegetation is quite variable, with areas of relatively flat, open forest, while other areas are step. Fallen trees are challenging and favour strong, robust runners. The venue suited Dent who was the fastest on the 4.4 km Moderate 1 course with a time of 22 min 28 sec, 23 seconds faster than Paul de Jongh.

The full results for event #10 are here, the splits by course on Winsplits are here and the maps and photos on Facebook are here.

After the age/gender handicap factors were applied Dent’s corrected km rate of 4 min 50.77 sec was 30 seconds faster than next best Eric Morris. De Jongh was third fastest with a km rate of 5 min 21.33 sec.
