Two parameters were tracked in the analysis: the score of the whole elite group of athletes (the 5 best results were counted) and the score of the winner of the MMM compared to the marathon world champion of that year.

The graph shows that in the years checked, the best year was 2012, when the score of the MMM reached 95.6 percent of the score of the leader, which was in that year a marathon in Dubai. The lowest performance in Košice was in 2011, when it achieved 88.99 percent of the Frankfurt am Main marathon which was that year’s leader.

When comparing the performance of an MMM winner to the performance of a winner of the highest quality marathon, the year 2012 was the best one, too. Lawrence Kimaiyo reached a time of 2:07:01 to score 1,215 points, which was 96.12 percent of the score of the Dubai marathon winner, Ayele Abshero, who got 1,264 points for the time 2:04:23.
