The official results from the Berlin marathons. The python script scraper.py collects JSON data using the API offered by the Berlin marathon website and writes it in csv format. It was hacked together to get the job done; the code is ugly and uncommented. Although data exists for every year since 1974, the API only offers the data since 2005.
