This is covered by Law 38, Section 3. It states that the person run out shall be the one whose ground is closest to the end where the wicket is put down.
Both batsmen have left their ground, so Law 29 section 2, clause C states that "each ground belongs to whichever batsman is nearer to it" hence batsman B is out.
