Notes: 1973 was the inaugural year. For 1973-86, the race distance was 5.816 mi (9.360 km). In 1990 and 1995-96, the race distance was 10 km. The 1973 race did not record times; the first 15-20 finishers were misdirected near the finish onto the Capitola wharf. The actual distance run by the top finishers is unknown but was about the same as the proper course.
