Note: 1958 was the inaugural year. The 2000-03 courses had a net drop of slightly more than 5 m/km which is considered excessive. The 1999 course has a net drop of 4.27 m/km which is (barely) acceptable. For 2004 to date, the course is standard with a net elevation gain of 5 meters. The race was known as the Shinmai Marathon thru 1997.
