Ironman Hamburg 2024 – Analyzing Results

2023 Hamburg.Course Conditions

As you can tell from the finishing times, conditions have been favorable in Hamburg: Warm but not hot, some wind but probably from a directions that helped a bit (nothing usual so far) – and a bike course that was slightly short (officially acknowledged as 178k). On average, the course was even faster than last year’s chaotic race – especially on the bike, and about 13 minutes faster than the already fast 2022 which was the last female-only race. On balance, I will add the fast Hamburg times to my “records page” but with a “*” and another new explanation. 

Based on a quick analysis right after the race, here are a few new entries for the records page:

  • Jackie Herings’s 8:19 is faster than Skye Moench’s US record (8:22 from Florida 2023)
  • Maja Stage’s finish in 8:21 was faster than her won Danish record (8:34 from Texas 2022)
  • Daniela Bleymehl’s 4:20 bike split is lower than Lisa Norden’s fastest Ironman bike time (4:21 from Western Australia 2023) – but on a course that is slightly short
  • Julie Iemmolo was faster than the current French record (8:34 vs. Manon Genet’s time from Challenge Almere 2021)
  • Elisabetta Curridori was a few seconds faster than her own Italian record from Challenge Almere 2021
  • Erin Schenkels’ 8:41 was faster than her own Canadian record from Florida 2023 (8:47)

The number of potential new records shows that it’s very doubtful that Hamburg 2024 was fully comparable to other races.
