Notes: 1977 was the inaugural year. The course was lengthened and certified in 1985. In 1995, the course was not run as certified due to intense smoke from a fire and was estimated to be 300 meters short. This event was known as the Big Boy Classic for 1989-2001, Elby's Distance Classic for 1979-88, and Elby's First National Bank for 1977-78.  The race distance was 20 km thru 2010.
