More (Race) Data Nerdery
So, another race (Habitat for Humanity 5k charity, 2011), another batch of data. Unlike the last batch of data, I had less pre-conceived notions about the makeup, as I was paying more attention to our 9-year-old who ran her first 5k with us. Like the last set of data, the bulk of people came from towns in close proximity:
Ronkonkoma Bohemia 35 31 Oakdale Sayville 18 12 Holbrook Patchogue 11 11 Manorville West Babylon 7 7 East Patchogue Great River 6 6
Interestingly, the host town, Bohemia, didn't have the top spot. This race had 351 registered, the bulk were female (195 Women, 156 Men). Ages ranged from 7 to 75, again with the bulk grouped in the 40-60 range:
We have one more 5k this coming weekend, which I hope I'll get some data from, and then I can start looking at trends. I'm eager to see what emerges.
