Chicago Triathlon 2013 Results Analysis: International Distance

The 2013 edition of the LifeTime Chicago Triathlon featured more than 9,000 triathletes competing in a variety of distances -- Super Sprint, Sprint, Olympic -- and in several categories -- age group, elite, mountain bike, paratriathletes, and athletes who raced all three distances.

About 2700 finished the International Distance (.75 mile swim, 40k bike, 10k run) in an average time of 3 hours and 14 minutes. Compared with results from 2009 to 2012, the 2013 results indicated it was a tougher event on the run (by 5 minutes vs 2012) than in previous years.

We've run the numbers to provide a complete analysis of results, by year, by age group, by swim/bike/run split, correlation between bike and run splits, and beyond, in the charts below. For more, see our
