How would one go about watching this if we're not in Chicago? Will it be nationally televised/streamed?
I believe in the past three ChiMarathon has linked the local tv webstream through LRC for everyone to watch. Am I wrong?
I'm drawing a blank as far as how or even if I've viewed Chicago live in the past. Hoping we get a definitive answer soon.
Isn't Chicago always covered by a local station that consistently misses the break and focuses inordinately on weather reports and human interest stories? I seem to remember that it's by far the worst coverage of all the majors.
The local coverage is indeed the worst coverage of any marathon Iâ€™ve ever seen.
Thereâ€™s a perky weather lady that gives weather updates about every 15 minutes even though it isnâ€™t necessary. And thereâ€™s usually some guy talking to people along the street, (wow, thereâ€™s a water stop with guys in drag - letâ€™s talk to them for 10 minutes because itâ€™s so much fun) - meanwhile they are missing a big break in the race. When Bekele ran there, they totally missed it when he dropped out of the lead pack. Didnâ€™t even mention it, the morons. Prepare to watch and be devastated.
