those women times are ridiculous honestly (yes I'm a guy), but a 3:40 marathon for a 25 y.o woman is not equivalent to a 3:10 marathon for a 25 y.o guy. Seriously.
I agree with you 100%. It doesn't even follow the age and gender charts. I believe the reasoning for this is trying to create a field of 50% men and women (think it was 60/40 last few years still). So to encourage equal participation the time for young woman was 3:40 and extrapolated from there.
Equal is not always far.
I train guys the bust their hump to run that 3:10, while I find most focused woman can hit there BQ with significantly less effort.
I am biased as well.
