Cole Sprout ran 36 seconds faster this year at Desert Twilight than at Liberty Bell. As it turns out, that about average for all 28 boys who ran both races.

Of the 28 Colorado boys who ran both Liberty Bell and Desert Twilight, 27 ran faster at Desert Twilight and one ran the same time. Being three weeks deeper into the season and a very fast course at lower altitude, you would have to concede that Desert Twilight has some advantages, but it is a (Bermuda) grass course and Liberty Bell is about one-third firmly packed trail, two-thirds asphalt, and downhill overall, so the question is still worth asking.

This year, for those 28 boys who ran both meets, Desert Twilight averaged 39 seconds faster. That is very similar to the 37-second time delta for the girls who ran both races, but caution is urged that this number will not remain constant from year to year. Conditions change year to year, but this does give some sort of idea of how the two meets compare.

And, shown below are the comparative times for all 28 boys who ran both meets.
