Cherry Blossom Race


The Cherry Blossom 10 Mile Run is a road race held in Washington, D.C. in April each year. (The name comes from the famous cherry trees that are in bloom in April in Washington.) The results of this race are published. This data frame contains the results from the 2005 race.




A data frame with 8636 observations on the following variables.

  • state State of residence of runner.

  • time Official time from starting gun to finish line.

  • net The recorded time (in seconds) from when the runner crossed the starting line to when the runner crossed the finish line. This is generally less than the official time because of the large number of runners in the race: it takes time to reach the starting line after the gun has gone off.

  • age Age of runner in years.

  • sex A factor with levels F M.
