In odd years (except 2009 and 2019), starting with 1999, the race has been 25.7 miles long, ending at Alexander Road.

* indicates a significantly different distance. In 1976, race started at Fine Hall. The 1985 race ended in Kingston.
During 1977-1998, the distance was about 50 yards longer in odd years (going from Rutgers to Princeton), since different exchange points are used in Kingston.
In 2019, the race ended 0.6 miles early at Washington Road, because of construction at Alexander Road.
In 2023, the race was 2.0 miles shorter, because the usual starting point (Landing Lane) was inaccessible.
