Notes: 1979 was the inaugural year. The 1999 race was not run as certified altho the times appear to be acceptable (see Race Time Bias). The 1997 race was remeasured as 19.830 km. The 1979 race was advertised as 20.3 km. For the 1980's and early 1990's the start of this race has been described as chaotic with runners leading the gun by as much as a minute. Hence, times should not be considered reliable. The race time bias analysis indicates excessively fast times; these may have been a result of the start conditions and/or a short course. Results from the 1981-1992 races are not considered reliable for record purposes.
