(13-Jun) -- The Boston Athletic Association has finalized their elite fields for the second annual B.A.A. 10-K scheduled for Sunday, June 24.  Boston Marathon champions Geoffrey Mutai (2011), Caroline Kilel (2011) and Sharon Cherop (2012) headline the race.  Mutai (27:19) and Kilel (31:58) were also the race winners last year.

The B.A.A. 10-K is the second leg of the inaugural B.A.A. Distance Medley.  Athletes will be scored on total time for this event, plus the B.A.A. 5-K (April 15) and the B.A.A. Half-Marathon (October 7), and the top man and woman will each receive $100,000. Declared participants in the Medley are annotated, below.
