Course Records

I only have the detailed results for 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 that year, when Irma Heeren finished in 8:56:23.
