Chicago Marathon 2019 Live Stream Not able to make it to Chicago to watch your favorite runners cross the 2019 Bank of America Chicago Marathon finish line in person? will hit the city streets Sunday morning for the 2019 Bank of America Chicago Marathon.
NBC Chicago will be providing live coverage of the event starting at 7 a.m. CT online and on television. The network will wrap up TV coverage at 11 a.m., but a camera set up at the finish line will be live streamed until 3 p.m.
For Spanish-language viewers, Telemundo Chicago will also be covering the race for the same times as NBC.
The course, which starts in Grant Park, will be open for 6.5 hours. Runners will start in seven different groups with start times ranging from 7:20 a.m. to 8:35 a.m. Olympic gold medalist Mo Farah and Brigid Kosgei, winner of the 2019 London Marathon, won the elite competitions last year.
Rupp remains the favorite for the Olympic trials on Feb. 29 because the U.S. lacks men who can consistently break 2:10. Rupp has done that in all four of his finished marathons in this Olympic cycle.
Rupp’s primary competition in Chicago will be Brit Mo Farah, his longtime training partner who left Salazar and the Oregon Project in 2017, citing a desire to move back home. Farah is the defending champion.
The women’s race features another Salazar-trained Oregon Project runner, Jordan Hasay. Hasay, the second-fastest U.S. female marathoner in history, said she has had no contact of any kind with Salazar since the ban.
“He’s very, very close to me, and usually the last few weeks before the marathon are really fun because he starts getting anxious and starts calling three times a day about, oh, make sure you bring your gray socks instead of white socks and this and that. Little stuff,” Hasay told media in Chicago. “I’ve been doing this long enough that I’m pretty much able to coach myself. … But just in the sense of having that mentorship there and that friendship, those last moments of advice and excitement before the race, that’s definitely been tough. I miss that.
