Ironman UK 2018 – Analyzing Results

IMUK LogoCourse Conditions 

This year’s bike course was shortened by about 27km (or 17 miles) because wildfires made parts of the planned course unusable or dangerous. This resulted in bike times about 45 minutes quicker than normal.The swim was four minutes slower (non-wetsuit?) with a “normal” run, resulting in overall times about 40 minutes quicker than in previous years, making expected times hard to reliably calculate, so the “difference to expected” should be considered more of an indication.

Kona Qualifying

Here’s the athletes that have improved their Kona slot chances in Bolton:

  • Safe: Joe Skipper (Lucy Gossage was already safe before the race)
  • Close (but probably not enough): Camilla Lindholm, Simon Cochrane

The other athletes that scored well are still too far behind the projected cutoffs to have a realistic chance for a slot without racing again.
