Hi everyone. Had an amazing race and race experience in Louisville. I'll definitely be back. Was sad to see lots of athletes with flats due to tacks. I was having a perfect race until mile 6 or 7 of the run.
The 2227 finishers of 2012 Ironman Louisville appear to have tackled the harshest conditions of the last four years, with 14% DNS rate, an incredibly high 14% DNF rate, and the highest average time since 2009: 13:41. If the conditions in the 2010 race
were considered highly extreme, but 2012 may have even been worse. Needless to say, Ironman Louisville remains ranked near the top of our Toughest Ironman Triathlon ratings
