Week 6 of the Back Cove Weekly Race Series was met with a light breeze, no clouds, and temperatures in the mid-60s. There were 145 runners out this evening to take part in the race. The popularity of the series this year is very evident, as every week there has been at least 100 runners and of those hundreds of finishers over the past 6 weeks, 22 of them have run all six races. Last year, there were only 2 runners to complete the first 6 races. This is by far the largest initial leader board in the race series’ history.
The race itself was led by series newcomer Tyler Jasud in 16:33, almost 30 seconds ahead of 2nd place.
Dave Manz (01:50:23) and David Mann (01:52:55) both ran well and have managed to place themselves atop the leader board. You have to go back a full 5 minutes in cumulative time for the first 6 races in order to find 3rd place.
The leader board is only going to get larger from here on out as new runners complete their 6th race so that they can appear in the standings, and as existing runners finish in faster times and have their slowest races drop off.
