Kastor and Yamauchi will be using the 13.1-mile race as a final tune-up for the London Marathon in April. Kastor, of Mammoth Lakes, Calif., was the 2006 London Marathon champion.

Kastor is coming off a win last month at the Rock ‘n’ Roll Half-Marathon in Phoenix in 1 hour, 9 minutes and 43 seconds. The U.S. marathon record-holder and three-time Olympian was seventh at the NYC Half-Marathon held in August last year.

Defending champion Paula Radcliffe plans to skip the event.
