One interesting observation from these rankings is 1997 was one hot year. The third place finisher was better than the first place finisher in four out of the remaining six years (1995, 1996, 2008) in the men, and the second place women's finisher was better than the women's first place finisher in five out of the remaining six years (1996, 2006-2009).

Trends in the average and median are:

There is still the suggestion of times increasing through the '00's, but since mean and median times don't track well, it's important to avoid the "Chi by Eye" syndrome and fall victim to the Rorschach Effect.
