Talkback: How long will it take to complete your first Ironman?

Are input and output times in seconds? Minutes? Hours? You've given me a lovely equation but not the necessary units to actually make it work!

    do need a mara time for it, though... i still don't have a standalone time for 26.2 (my one and only time is from IM!) 

    does it only work for the IM Switzerland course? I can imagine the times could be different for Wales, for example...

    Hi Andrew, all times needed are in mins – it does say that just above the equation but is easy to miss, so I've made it bold it stand out more.

    Let us know if it works for you!

  • I've completed 5 Ironman,all between 11:38 and 12:32; Ive completed 4 1/2 IM and 2 dozen Olympics. Based upon my results the best predictor for IM time is your Olympic finish time X 4.67; or 1/2 IM finish time X 2.25. they are correct to within 5 minutes for me.
