For those of us NOT going to Boston

Post  dot520 on Mon Apr 09, 2012 8:23 pm

Will there be live streaming of the race online somewhere or will there be a TV broadcast shown across the nation at another time? I thought that last year one of the cable channels showed 'something.' Question

I know screen names, but if people don't mind, what is a list of people running it so that we can follow you?

I know:
Mike MacLellan
Michele Keane
......

I don't think my crash and burn will make good tracking...

Here is the play by play:
Running ... Running ... Flame ... drunken ... Sweaty ... Sweaty ..... Shots drunken cheers

I have no idea about live streaming or tracking but one of my friends I run with is also running it and I know I want to track her.

Hey Dot, the BAA website says that Universal Sports is broadcasting the marathon from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Eastern time.

Here's a link to the Universal Sports site

And I just discovered that my cable system doesn't carry it anymore. Drat.

good news

Post  grennifer on Mon Apr 09, 2012 10:36 pm

the good news is that universal sports is advertising free streaming this year (I have paid to watch it the last couple of years).

the bad news is the broadcast quality has been poor. One camera on the lead runners and no idea what is going on behind the lead pack. I'll still watch it because I am that much of a geek, but wish a major network (ESPN?) would cover this. What else is going on Monday morning?

Good to hear, because I have paid for it in the past, as well.

One thing we ought to think about is tracking our folks live during the race.

We "organized" that only as it happened in real time last year, and someone got their feelings hurt because we missed them in the chaos and they didn't get tracked.

Not volunteering to organize!

I looked on their site and can't find the link to track runners. Will that just be up on race day? Do we need to start a new thread for all of them to post their names and bib #s?

I thin they don't post it until race day. Would be ideal to have a list of names and bib numbers, yes.

Thanks, Mark...........yep, I don't have Universal Sports either. Guess I'll just have to watch it on the computer for what it's worth.
