IM Arizona 2011 – Analyzing Results

Race Conditions

Arizona has been quite consistent with the adjustment in the last years, and this year it came in at 12:25. It started with a few slower years and has course rating of 7:57, quite a bit slower than Florida (22:04 this year, overall 14:16).

Male Results

Eneko Llanos was the second male athlete posting a sub-8 result in North America within two weekends. As noted above, Arizona is a slower course than Florida, so his performance was more than just a few seconds better than the clock time showed.

One other thing came out of this race: Tim O’Donnell was leading the race after the bike and dropped to 28th on the run. His 3:44 was probably the slowest marathon for a sub-9 finish – probably one of the weirder records in Ironman racing.

Female Results

On the women’s side, we also had a “sub-x result”, in fact both the winner Leanda Cave and second place Linsey Corbin broke 9 hours. Meredith Kessler was just 15 seconds away.
