Why is it often difficult to find out how to watch pro races/meets? There should be obvious links to TV/Live coverage on official websites.
If an event is on live, we normally have a tv/streaming link to that on the homepage. So check the HP.
5th avenue will not be streamed live. Get your butt out in the city and watch it.
After the fact there normally is a video of the race. In the meantime, people can post results below.
Unfortunately the 5th Ave Mile isn't [or at least hasn't been] very spectator friendly. No live video [or even audio] near the finish line so if you're there live, all you can do as is watch the clock, wait for the runners to appear and try to see who won.
This race has so much potential but it's been decades since NYRR did much about exploiting that potential. Seehttp://m.youtube.com/watch?v=lAnHs6eTYgU
for a video of the 1981 race [broadcast on network TV]. I believe this was the first one and that Maree's winning time remains the event record.
