New Englanders who can’t be in front of their TVs to watch the Boston Marathon will be able to watch the race live online. CBSBoston.com will be streaming live pre-race coverage at 7 a.m. , and continue through 5 p.m.
If you are outside of New England, or you’re going to be at work and your company’s computer servers are outside of New England, you may not be able to see the Elite Race portion of our coverage online (approx.. 9a-12p). Sorry, the New England border is where our online streaming rights for this portion of the race end.
THE FINISH LINE LIVE
When you visit CBSBoston.com on Marathon Monday, there will also be a live camera locked down on the Finish Line starting around 9 a.m. You can watch your friends, family members and thousands of other runners take those triumphant steps across the blue and yellow line.
HEARTBREAK HILL CAMERA
We are happy to be bringing back our web-exclusive Heartbreak Hill camera to our online offerings this year.
We will be streaming that live camera on CBSBoston.com beginning around 9 a.m. and throughout the afternoon so that you can pause, say hi to the people at home, and let them know you made it up Heartbreak!
