Notes: The numbers of finishers for 1987 is an estimate based on the number of entries on the Chronomix tape and assuming the same percentage of male/female finishers as entrants. There was a breakdown in the finish line procedures due to extreme wind and cold, making it impossible to identify bandits on the timing tape. In 2006, sex was not reported for 82 finishers. In 2007, the runner's sex was not reported for 424 finishers and these have been included as male finishers.
