In the mens race, hot favourite is Vlastimil Dvoracek, who last year duked it out with Jesper Olsen in the George Archer 6 Day race in South Africa finishing with 656 km (407 miles).
Whole bunch of regulars returning including New Mexico RD extraordinaire, Mark Dorion, Pete Stringer who at 67 is not the oldest runner signed up. That honour goes to Canadian, Joe Cleary who at 69 is making his debut in Flushing Meadow Park along with 33 other runners making a total of some 80 runners on the course.
