Fastest Courses

Some courses produce faster race results than others - select a fast course and your 'PB' is easier to get.

The lists below are taken from my database of race result analysis and give an indication of the faster courses by the average time to complete each one.

The Scottish Problem
Well, it is for me. You see there is about 10% of the UK population living in Scotland and so I guess about 10% of the number of races. My problem started with the Half Marathon, I reckoned that I could collate the data for most Scotish Marathons and Half Marathons to produce an average time to complete each race. The problem is that with over 50 marathons and half marathons, each with say, 5 years of results online - I need to look at 250 to 300 race results to produce this list as fully as I can!! This is my problem - a lot of work.

Years looked at
With several hundred 10km and 5km races in Scotland every year these lists will be selective at my discretion - I haven't decided which ones yet but plan to match one of each to the marathon list.
