USA Medalists Headline 2013 Healthy Kidney 10K

NEW YORK CITY - Kenya's Leonard Patrick Komon, the 10K world record-holder, and Edwin Soi, the 2008 Olympic 5000-meter bronze medalist, will face off against three-time IAAF World Championships medalist Moses Kipsiro of Uganda and IAAF World Cross Country Championship team bronze medalist Abera Kuma of Ethiopia in the 2013 UAE Healthy Kidney 10K on Saturday, May 11, it was announced by New York Road Runners president and CEO Mary Wittenberg. This race will mark the comeback for American distance star Meb Keflezighi, who suffered from a calf injury throughout the 2013 spring season.

Held over Central Park's rolling hills, the race is sponsored by the Embassy of the United Arab Emirates and benefits the

National Kidney Foundation. The runners will compete for a $25,000 first-place prize and the $30,000 Zayed bonus, which is awarded to the race winner if he breaks the existing Central Park course record of 27:35, set by Komon in 2011. The bonus was named after the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the race's honoree and the first president of the United Arab Emirates, who was treated for kidney disease in the United States and benefited from the expertise, knowledge, and professionalism of U.S. medical institutions and doctors.

"We are thrilled to collectively host one of the strongest 10K professional fields ever assembled and thousands of eager runners of all ranks at the UAE Healthy Kidney 10K," said Wittenberg. "Whether runners are coming out to beat the course record or their own personal record, an incredible cause and camaraderie between runners will inspire all."
