Today is the day of the 120th Boston Marathon. The world’s oldest marathon and world’s most prestigious road race. Most of us will never have the opportunity to run this amazing marathon, but we can all be there in our hearts. I will be cheering on many friends this morning as they run 26.2 miles from Hopkinton to Boston.
The best way for those of us outside of Massachusetts is via online options. The 120th Boston Marathon broadcast will be live-streamed on the NBC Sports Live Extra app, which can be downloaded for free to your smartphone or tablet, or found on platforms like Apple TV and Amazon Fire TV. On web browsers, the stream is available at nbcsports.com/live-extra. Cable television views can watch via NBCSN which will carry 4-1/2 hours of coverage on Marathon Monday, with the broadcast starting at 8:30 a.m. ET and lasting until 1 p.m. (the elite women start at 9:32 a.m. and the elite men and first wave start at 10 a.m.).
