2012 Ironman U.S. Championship - Race Results

Results for Saturday's Ironman U.S. Championship in New York and New Jersey have been posted, and you can find them here at Official results are now available (only unofficial stats were previously available).

You have two options for viewing results. One is searchable (non-official) results, the other is the listing of official results, which are available as a PDF file and as an HTM (web) document.

The 2013 Ironman in New York/New Jersey will be held on August 10th. Registration was initially open for the event, but was suspended earlier this week. You can find the organizer's explanation for the 2013 Ironman registration suspension here. [Update, Aug. 15th: A Wall Street Journal article suggests that a steep price rise, from $895 for the 2012 race to $1,200 for next year's, was causing a slow rate of people signing up for the 2013 event. The article says it's up in the air as to whether the event is held next year.]

Congratulations to all finishers of the 2012 Ironman U.S. Championship. I was out watching and cheering along the running course, near the finish, and it was inspiring to see the men and women finishing after 12 or more hours.
