NEW YORK -- Organizers of the ING New York City Marathon said here today that World Championships Marathon bronze medalist Feyisa Lelisa of Ethhiopia and two-time European Championships medalist Inga Abitova of Russia had been added to their elite field.  New York Road Runners officials also said that the third-fastest half-marathoner of all time, Kenya's Mathew Kisorio, would make his marathon debut in their race, and that six-time IAAF World Cross Country Championships medalist Werknesh Kidane of Ethiopia --wife of the race's defending men's champion Gebre Gebremariam-- would also be running.

With the inclusion of these athletes --plus Morocco's Abdellah Falil, Ethiopia's Firehiwot Dado Tufa, and Kenya's Stephen Kibet Kosgei-- the world's largest marathon boasts a powerful field.  The men's race features the reigning champions of the marathons in New York (Gebremariam), Boston (Geoffrey Mutai) and London (Emmanuel Mutai), plus world championships medalists Lelisa, Tsegaye Kebede and Jaouad Gharib.  Six athletes have personal best times under 2:06.  The women's race has the marathon champions from London (Mary Keitany) and Boston (Caroline Kilel), and 11 women who have broken 2:25:30.

The top athletes who are entered are as follows:
