NEW YORK (15-May) -- The New York Road Runners have released the final start list for tomorrow's Healthy Kidney 10-K. Not included is two-time ING New York City Marathon champion Marilson Gomes dos Santos who had intended to run the race. Unfortunately for dos Santos, a Brazilian, his passport was not returned to him in time from the U.S. Consultate in Sao Paulo with his required visa stamp.

"I regret for not being able to travel to New York for this race," Gomes dos Santos told Brazilian reporters on a specially arranged conference call this morning. "This is a race I really intended to be on for."

The elite field is as follows.
