The pattern varies a little, but clearly as well as changes to swim times the race played out differently to the year before. Unsurprisingly the year old male age group once again takes the biggest share. Occasionally, when a change is more significant, I drop those results from the overall comparison. With Ironman Melbourne I decided to try something different and instead adjust the results for my examination of top age group finishing times. Swim times were scaled from 1.

The red circles offer the top 20 age group finish times for comparison. As stated at the start of this post — Melbourne is a competitive race with fast qualifying times. The charts above prove it. Finally, if the qualifier has already been raced, the times for automatic qualifiers at that most recent race.

They are all free to download and use. Find out what it takes to place in your age group or to qualify for the Ironman Worlds Championships in Kona.

To help you interpret them the sections are as follows: Estimated Kona Slot Allocation for Qualifiers lists my estimated slot allocations for each age group at each race currently in the qualification season.

These estimates are based on previous age group numbers and assumes the qualifier will follow a similar distribution. Average Age Group Winning Time lists the average times from previous years of racing for the winners in each age group at a given race. Average Qualifying Time for Kona Slot Allocation lists the average times for all potential Kona qualifiers, based on estimated slot allocations, in each age group at a given race.

Average Final Qualifying Time for Kona Slot Allocation lists the average times for the previous final Kona qualifiers in each age group at a given race.
