Doubtful.  I would presume that a race such as this has zero appearance fees, that they offer comped entries and possibly one-night's stay at the host hotel, at best.  Kenyans crawl out of the woodwork for even relatively modest prize purses if they can also get travel and lodging provided (and often even if not).  It is perhaps the most pedestrian major city marathon I have seen in quite a while, the winning times coming out of a field that size are testimony to that.
