How the number of participants in Ironman events has changed over the years?

A couple of days ago I wanted to see how the number of participants in Ironman events has changed over the years.  I wanted an easy way to see the total number of athletes per event for all years.  TRIResults.com already had the page that displayed all available results per event.  That page now has an extra column “Athletes” which shows the total number of participants per event per year.  So anyone who is interested in that kind of information can now find it on triresults.com.  Here are some examples:

Ironman Wisconsin

  • 2002 – 1802 participants
  • 2010 – 2550 participants
  • 40% increase

Ironman Canada

  • 1998 – 1712 participants
  • 2010 – 2731 participants
  • 60% increase

Ironman USA Lake Placid

  • 1999 – 1461 participants
  • 2010 – 2611 participants
  • 78% increase

Ironman Coeur d’Alene

  • 2003 – 1574 participants
  • 2010 – 2262 participants
  • 43% increase

Ironman Lanzarote

  • 1998 – 647 participants
  • 2010 – 1170 participants
  • 80% increase

Ironman Hawaii
