The Numbers Don’t Lie

But what are they saying? DD take a closer look at some stats related to the USATF-NE Grand Prix Series

Dave Dunham did a pretty tremendous job of compiling stats and combing through the numbers related to the 2016 USATF-NE Grand Prix series and if you’re like me and have seen them already, you’ve probably gone back to view them a few times. Whether you’ve seen them or not, consider this your handy shortcut guide to the various links.

Some surprising stats in there, including:

  • GLRR had the most unique finishers (136)
  • The BAA had the most individual cash won ($5,075), but CMS took home the most team cash ($2,250). In fact, CMS had nearly double the BAA team cash.
  • The 5k had the most participants (not really a surprise) but the half marathon nearly matched that number
  • Men outnumbered the women?! A little surprising because most pieces on race participation numbers nationwide seem to say that women outnumber the men. Smaller sample size here, but still a little surprising that the gap was that big (60/40).

The committee met tonight, along with club representatives, to come up with the final slate for the 2017 series so hopefully we’ll have more on that to report soon.
