The new Ironman.com results algorithm does not allow for the top finishers in each age-category as a group. In other words you can find your individual results through the Ironman.com link below, but you won’t know how you fared within your age-group. Unless of course you know everyone in your age-category and look them up individually. As a rule I would have posted the top 10 or 15 male and female in each category on this results page, but unfortunately there is no way of doing it.
