Analysis of Dallas Marathon and 50ok Uncovers Serial Course Cutter
The BMW Dallas Marathon and 50Ok races have been hung on December 15th.
Last 12 months the 50ok path used to be changed because of flooding issues, and there have been to begin with five runners within the best 15 that obviously didn’t run all the path.
While the effects are higher on the best of the chief board, there are runners in each the 50ok and the marathon that obviously didn’t whole the total classes, for no matter explanation why.
For the 50ok race, there have been not up to ten runners that overlooked the 22 mile checkpoint. It is obvious that those runners opted to do the marathon and didn’t whole the out and again phase defined within the map above. Unlike lat 12 months, none of those runners positioned close to the highest of the chief board.
There have been 4 marathon individuals that overlooked more than one splits with end instances below four:00:00. The splits that did sign in for those runners have been far and wide 16 minute in step with mile tempo. 3 of the runners hit the 10ok mat between 1:44:15 and 1:44:18. These 3 didn’t hit any further mats till 24.five. It is obvious that those runners ran the part marathon path. I don’t imagine they entered with any intent to cheat. Investigation into the fourth runner, then again, printed a historical past of overlooked splits.

The fourth runner registered a 15ok tempo of roughly 2:39:00, and subsequent gave the impression on the 24.five mile checkpoint in a time of three:20: According to the effects, he lined the roughly 15 mile stretch in simply over 40 mins. It seems that this runner ran simply previous the place the part marathon grew to become off earlier than turning round.
He is indexed as first position in his age crew.
Generally I’d say this used to be a reasonably blameless outcome the place a slower runner bailed at the complete marathon and made up our minds to run the part marathon. However, this runner’s historic DallasMarathon effects display a trend.
- 2018 Dallas Marathon – Disqualified – most effective hit 24.five break up – Boston Qualifying Time
- 2017 Dallas Marathon – Removed from Results – Boston Qualifying time
- 2016 Dallas Marathon – Boston Qualifying Time, most effective registered on the 20 mile mat
Looking on the runner’s Marathonguide.com effects, he additionally had a Boston qualifying time on the 2017 LA Marathon. (three:34:52)
Doing some extra digging, I discovered many different effects the place his ultimate title used to be spelled otherwise. He has questionable leads to LA going again to 2013 – all with lacking splits. Given the historical past, I’d query his 2012 outcome as smartly, however the splits aren’t to be had.
- 2018 LA Marathon – lacking all splits prior via 20ok
- 2017 LA Marathon – lacking all splits prior via 20ok
- 2016 LA Marathon – lacking all splits prior via 20ok
- 2015 LA Marathon – lacking all splits prior via 20ok
- 2014 LA Marathon – lacking 10ok and 20ok splits
- 2013 LA Marathon – lacking 10ok and 20ok splits
In regards to The Dallas Marathon and 50ok. The effects are cleaner than ultimate 12 months. There are some effects that want adjusting, however normally those appear to be minor problems. I selected not to title the serial path cutter on this article for a couple of causes. One of which used to be my lack of ability to discover a excellent approach of touch. I all the time make a valid excellent religion try to touch topics of my articles.
