Ironman Chattanooga 2016 – Analyzing Results

Race Conditions

This year’s race was much slower than in the past (adjustment of 5:55, leading to a new course rating of 11:54), mainly because the run was really hard this year – probably a result of the heat on race day.

Male Race Results

After IM Austria in June, Marino won another Ironman race – if my data is correct it was his 16th win in an Ironman. He continues to be one of the best Ironman athletes, in addition to being a fast bike rider he is also able to follow that up with a strong run – his 2:55 was the second fastest of the day and one of only three sub-3 runs. After a broken elbow forced him out of IM Texas (and any decent chance of qualifying for Kona), Jeff Symonds was back to racing, and the fastest marathon of the day allowed him to run into second place. Third place went to Matthew Russell in his fifth IM-distance race of the year – and he’s also on the Kona startlist. After a few sub-par races Matt Hanson claimed 4th, Justin Daerr finished in 5th place.
