Subject: RE: If That Wasn't The Greatest Marathon Ever Run, What Was
According to this ARRS link, http://www.arrs.net/TB_Mara.htm average marathon biases are:
+52.3 New York City (NY/USA)
-1.1 Frankfurt (GER)
-68.5 Berlin (GER)
So New York is typically 52 seconds slow, while Berlin is 69 seconds fast, and Frankfurt (and Chicago -0.1) are fairly neutral.
I haven't seen specific race time biases for these 2011 races, but assuming we can use the "average" race time biases:
- The 2:03:38 in Berlin is only worth 2:04:46.5
- The 2:03:42 in Frankfurt is worth a 2:03:43.1
- A 2:05:06 performance in New York is worth a 2:04:13.7
This year's Boston advantage was computed to be -1:37 (?) this year, making a 2:03:02 worth 2:04:39.
Sammy Wanjiru's Olympic performance of 2:06:32 was worth 2:04:00.
This link http://www.arrs.net/AllTime/ATB_Mara.htm should be updated after the end of the year, and then we can see how all of the 2011 races compare, according to statistical calculations by the ARRS.
