Math on the Run: Analytical Insights

into the Marathon

The marathon has never been more popular among elite and recreational runners. This talk will feature discussion on world records progression, race pacing strategies, and the fairness of the current qualifying standards for the Boston Marathon. Attendees will be able to name factors involved in race performance, identify applications of mathematical modeling to distance running, and develop vocabulary used in running and mathematics.

Jeremiah Bartz is an assistant professor of mathematics at the University of North Dakota. His research interests include arrangement theory, combinatorics, and sports analytics. As a recreational runner, he is continually testing out race strategies. Some are more successful than others.
