Four-time Boston Marathon champion Robert Kipkoech Cheruiyot has withdrawn from the 2010 event because of an injured right hip.

Cheruiyot, of Kapsabet, Kenya, first won in 2003 and then three-peated from 2006-2008. He set the course record in 2006 at 2 hours, 7:14 minutes.

Defending champion Deriba Merga of Ethiopia and top Americans Ryan Hall and Meb Keflezighi headline the elite field for the 2010 race, which will be held April 19. Salina Kosgei of Kenya has entered the race to defend her women's title from 2009.
