Bobby Vlught (20,CA/USA)
Notes: 1912 was the inaugural year. In 1940, Bobbie Burke (USA) ran unofficially, no time available. For 1974-82, the course was reported to be 7.63 miles (12.28 km); prior to 1973, the course was reported to be 7.8 miles (12.55 km). In 1982, Tom Knight measured (and certified) the course that had been used for the 1980-1982 races and found the distance to be 7.51 miles 12.09 km) rather than the reported 7.63 miles (12.28 km). Given the vagaries in course measurement in earlier years and the traditional point-to-point course, it is likely the race distance has been close to 12 km for most of its history. This race was known as the Cross-City Run through the 1964 race. In 1965 and 1966, the women ran 1.5 miles (2.4 km) with Jerry Blalock (USA) winning in 1966 with a time of 8:06. In 1966, 1969 and 1970, women ran unofficially.  For 2014, only net times were available.
