IMFlorida

Course Conditions

As usual, IM Florida has been quite fast, though an adjustment of 15:49 is a bit slower than the previous 22:12 course rating. Conditions were slower than normal in the swim (-4:08) and the run (-1:46) while the bike was about normal (21:43 in line with an 18:51 bike course rating)

The female winner, Katrina Matthews, was able to set a new overall course record: She was more than two minutes quicker than the old record of 8:43:07, set by Yvonne Van Vlerken in 2013. On the bike, Ruth Astle posted a 4:32:13, a new bike course record, beating the old record also by Yvonne in 2013. (Renee Kiley was even quicker but had to DNF with a run injury.)
