It appears that there'll be a pair of new champions when the 2003 Med-City Relays and Marathon is run for the eighth time on Sunday.

Pete Gilman, last year's champion, is not expected to enter. Gilman, a 1994 Byron High graduate, recently ran the Boston Marathon.

Kathy Neises, of Madison, S.D., has not entered this year's race, either. In her first marathon last year she set a Med-City course record of 2:56.41. Four-time women's champion Kathy Waldron of Green Bay, Wis., who finished second last year, is not expected back. She recently finished eighth in the Green Bay Marathon and it's doubtful she would run two races of that distance so close to each other.

Last year a record 439 marathons finished the race.

The field last year drew 1,239 runners, including the relays where 440 competed in the four-person relay (each running 6.55 miles) and 360 in the two-person (each running 13.1 miles).
