Feeling excited for this year’s TCS NYC Marathon? We are, too–in fact, one of our editors will be covering the race on the ground in New York City! (Follow our coverage here.) That being said, we realize that most of our readers (and the rest of our team) will be watching from home. In fact, an estimated 710 million households are expected to tune in on Sunday morning. In that case, you need to know where you can catch the biggest marathon of the year–whether you’re watching from the comfort of your own home, at a friend’s house or at a local bar or restaurant.
ESPN2 will stream the entire 48th annual TCS NYC Marathon nationwide. Coverage begins at 9 a.m. EST and lasts until 12:30 p.m. EST. Viewers can catch pre-race coverage on ESPN3.
New Yorkers can tune in to local coverage on WABC-TV (channel 7). Coverage begins at 9 a.m. EST and lasts until 2 p.m. EST, with pre-race coverage beginning at 7 a.m. EST.
