Universal Sports Marathon-A-Thon Comes To TV

I’ve bemoaned the lack of running coverage on TV many times. There’s obviously an audience for it if even a fraction of the 16 million Americans who finished a road race in 2013 enjoy watching running. I’m one of them. I watch running on TV and the Web. Heck, I even host a show about running for New York Road Runners.

Thankfully, in addition to “NYRR On The Run,” there’s Universal Sports. The Olympic and endurance sports network is running a “Marathon-A-Thon” in April. What does this mean? Lots of marathons are going to be on TV.

It’s the second year they’re programming a month of marathons. Maybe if we all watch them, they’ll keep doing it. No more relying on unreliable Web streams that inevitable crash because so many of us are trying to load them at the same time. Wouldn’t that be nice?

It all starts Sunday, March 9 at 3 p.m. Eastern with the 2014 ASICS LA Marathon. Yay! Viewers will finally get to see the much-glorified “Stadium to Sea” course that takes 25,000 runners from Dodger Stadium to the beach in Santa Monica. The ASICS LA Marathon is on my personal bucket list, so I’m excited to see it’s finally getting some national coverage.

But the real Marathon-A-Thon begins in the wee hours of Sunday, April 6 with the Paris Marathon. It continues with the London and Rotterdam Marathons on April 13 and finishes with live coverage of the 2014 Boston Marathon on Monday, April 21. Four marathons on TV in the space of 16 days? That’s the equivalent of a marathon every four days! I’m breathless just thinking about.

Plus, Universal Sports will air encore presentations of those and other marathons from around the world every Monday in April from 8 PM to 2 AM Eastern. Read the rest of this entry →

Edison Peña, the rescued Chilean miner known as “The Runner,” will run the ING New York City Marathon on Nov. 7, Universal Sports reports.

New York Road Runners, which organizes the race, invited Peña to New York as their special guest after president and CEO Mary Wittenberg heard about his extraordinary efforts to stay fit and sane while trapped with 32 other men in a gold and copper mine near Copiapo, Chile.
