Notes: 1920 was the inaugural year. The women's race distance was reported as 1.5 miles for 1966-1973 but was probably closer to 1.2 miles. The race was run from Hamilton to Dundas and back during the 1970's and earlier years. The course was reported as "known short" in 1927 and a longer course was used thru the 1950's. The 1977 race distance was estimated as about 9.6 miles at the time; the distance for the 1981 race was about 9.8 miles; the distances for all years 1981 and earlier are considered to have been significantly short. The course was adjusted to the full ten miles for the 1982 race. This race has also been known as the Boxing Day 10 mile (December 26th is Boxing Day in Canada) and earlier, as the Hamilton YMCA New Years Day Race.
