Note: The course lengths appear to vary from year to year, even when the reported race distance remains the same. The values presented represent a combination of course conditions and course length. The race distances were clearly shorter for 1992-1997 than for the years before and after. Averages and extremes in these circumstances are relatively meaningless.
