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.
