Course Records

I can only details the records from the time that Almere is held as part of the Challenge family. The “real” male record (though probably on a different course) is held by Jan van der Marel with 7:57:46 from 1999. As far as I can tell the female record is also from 1999, when Irma Heeren finished in 8:56:23.
