Ironman Boulder 2014 – Analyzing Results

Race Conditions

This was the first year that an Ironman was held in Boulder – and probably the last one with a professional field. Overall, it was a relatively slow course (adjustment of 0:17), between IM Lake Placid (a bit slower at -2:22) and Coeur d’Alene (a bit faster at 1:56). The bike seemed to be pretty fast, while the run was a lot slower – not too many fast runs, and only one sub-3h run.

Male Race Results

Richie Cunningham was leading the race for a long time, but Justin Daerr’s 2:56 run carried the day:
