Notes: 1984 was the inaugural year. The course was first certified in 1992 (and again in 1996, 2001, 2005, and 2007) and has remained unchanged since then. The start and finish are at the same location, 24m MSL. At 5 km, the elevation is 68m; the highest point is 90m at 7.7 km; at 10 km the elevation is 53m. In 1984, the race distance was 11.9 km because the Dutch Athletic Federation did not allow new races to be longer than 12 km. Prior to 1992, the course was wheel measured and believed to be short by 100 meters or more. The race is run over seven hills, hence the name.
