Boston Marathon Live TV Covarege

Boston Marathon: the experience of catching the race on TV (or online) will still provide a Monday morning respite for those who couldn’t make it out the to 26.2-mile course running through Massachusetts.

The oldest marathon in the world, it’s still the long distance extravaganza to watch stateside in the week of Patriots’ Day and this, the 123rd race, is going to be aired so you can get a Boston Marathon live stream it from anywhere in the world.

The race itself, which is Olympic standard, starts in Hopkinton and works through eight municipalities, ending on Boylston Street. The racing standard is also high even for the amateurs. For men (aged 18-34) racing who aren’t doing so far a charity, they need to have run a BAA recognised marathon in under three hours and five minutes, for women it’s three hours and thirty five minutes or less. So it’s serious business.

As the first marathon to feature a female finisher, in 1967, this is a historically great race for the women’s elite. Current champion Desiree Linden, was the first American woman to win the race in 33 years. She will return this year alongside fellow American Jordan Hasay. In 2017 at Boston, Hasay ran the fastest-ever marathon debut by an American woman. For the gents taking part in the elite race it’s Americans Dathan Ritzenhein and Jared Ward who will be going for first place. Last year’s winner, Yuki Kawauchi of Japan, will also be there to compete, no doubt at the front of the pack.

As you can imagine the 2019 Boston Marathon will live stream for the world to enjoy and this guide will help you find the best way to watch the race from anywhere you happen to be on the planet.

The early outlook for the 2019 marathon is that the day will start cold and wet, resulting in some schedule changes. However, the experience of catching the race on TV (or online) will still provide a Monday morning respite for those who couldn’t make it out the to 26.2-mile course running through Massachusetts.
