Ironman 70.3 Racine 2013 Results Analysis

2014: See our analysis and photos of Ironman 70.3 Racine 2014 at



Nearly 2,200 determined triathletes braved a challenging swim in a churning Lake Michigan to finish the Ironman 70.3 Racine 2013 edition in an average finish time of 6 hours and 10 minutes. The swim took a longer than average at 45 minutes, compared to a roughly typical 40 minutes, but athletes rode a 3 hour bike split -- exactly the same as in 2012 -- and then cut 10 minutes from 2012's 13.1 mile run to finish with an average time of 2:14. The 6:10 average finish time is slightly higher than the average time to finish a half Ironman, based on our analysis of dozens of events around the globe.

Details for the 2013 race, as well as comparable stats for the 2012 race, are below, overall, by age group, by split, by year, plus correlations between bike and run splits and finally, DNS and DNF averages.
