Melbourne Marathon Finishers 2015

Posted by:

Continuing a tradition, we have graphed the finishers of all Melbourne Marathons, 1978 to 2015.


This isn’t the clearest graph ever, but it might help to know that point 78 represents 1978 when there were 1947 finishers, 4.1% of whom were female, and point 14 represents 2014 when there were 6440 finishers, 30.7% of whom were female.

Recent years have seen a gradual increase in the percentage of female finishers, but the 2015 percentage (30.48) was a little lower than that of 2014 (30.75). Perhaps more disappointing is that the total number of finishers decreased for the second year.
