Dashboard Week Day 4: How fast do marathoners run?

Day 4 is a (brutal) challenge to scrape data from a website and visualize it. The requirements are simple, but the data prep is not.

For day 4, the team will need to visualize historical results of the London Marathon. The team will use results from 2014-2023.


  1. Enter the first two letters of their surname in the search box.
  2. Download all of the historical results for each page for each year. Hint: Macros are your friend.
  3. Before 3pm, they must have their dashboards uploaded to Tableau Public and the blog posts written. Plus all of the other standard requirements.

Good luck Team!
