The same Kenyans who swept the field last year, Peter Githuka (gih-THOO-kuh) and Margaret Kagiri (ka-GEER-ee) will be back again.
Also, many runners will be wearing yellow armbands, in honor of former race director Gary Taylor, who was killed in a triathlon this past spring.
Taylor's father will serve as honorary starter.
