Ironman Italy 2019 – Analyzing Results

IMItalyCourse Conditions

This year’s race in Italy was fast (adjustment of 22:26) compared to the two years before (average of 7:56, so about 14:30 quicker). As usual the majority of this “fastness” comes from the bike (close to 9 minutes) but also on the run (about 6 minutes). Just for a fun comparison, the run was about 9 minutes quicker than the average Kona marathon …

The winners posted fast times (the first sub-8 and sub-9 finishes) and a few new course records: Carolin Lehrieder set a new bike course and overall course record, improving last year’s times by Daniela Bleymehl. Cam Wurf not only posted new bike and overall records (previously held by 2017 winner Andi Dreitz and 2018 winner Andi Boecherer) but also a new run course record (his 2:45 improved on the 2017 time by Jens Petersen-Bach). In addition, Joanna Ryter ran the first sub-3 marathon and set a new run course record.

Cam’s 7:46:45 is the fastest IM finish in 2019 and also a new Australian national and Oceania continental record.
