Note: The number of finishers reflects all races (includes a half marathon and five mile) altho since 1995, the marathon has been the dominant event. For 1987-1999, the number of finishers was calculated from the number of registrants and the percent finished. For 1974-1986, the number of finishers was calculated as 90% of the number of registrants.  The numbers of finishers for 2000-date are for the marathon only.
