The Bank of America 2010 Chicago Marathon is coming up Sunday morning October 10th, 2010 and the event will be televised locally and broadcast over the Internet globally.
This could be one of the strongest fields in years in Chicago. Included in the field is last year’s winner and course recorder holder (and Olympic Champion) Sammy Wanjiru. There are six men in the field that have run under 2:07:00, so under the right conditions, this should be a very fast race. You can read a recap of the Men’s Field and a recap of the Women’s Field at on Universal Sports.
Here is all of the information that you’ll need to watch the race, depending upon whether you live in Chicago or elsewhere.
