Boston Marathon Coverage & Ongoing Updates

Looking for where to watch the Boston Marathon or keep track of the stats?

BAA.org is the official Boston Marathon website.  You can find each runner's 5k split there.

That site also lists all the following information...

Television
- Boston's WBZ-TV (channel 4) is the only local channel covering the Boston Marathon.
- The Universal Sports Channel will broadcast the coverage nationally.

Online
- CBSboston.com will broadcast the WBZ-TV coverage online, but is only available in the New England area.
- www.universalsports.com will broadcast their coverage online for a fee of $4.99.

Radio
- I am currently listening to WBZ Radio via the CBSboston.com website and have been since 6am (Yes, I was up at 6am)



10am: I am at a friend's watching the Universal Sports coverage on the TV and CBSBoston.com coverage online.

Hey Kurt!

Hope you're having a good day.

I'm following Jim from 50 after 40 and SUAR (Beth) on my cell phone. I'm pretty excited to see how they both do! I'll be at work today so I don't think I can watch it...although i wish I could!

I'm listening to the same radio station! I've got Boston on the brain!
I have cable - 100's of channels - but Universal Sports is not carried by our cable provider of course! Bummer! I flipped through the tv channels - it's pretty sad that there is absolutely no tv coverage of running's biggest event.
