It is Marathon Monday, with the 122nd running of the Boston Marathon currently underway. The race can be seen on NBC Sports and local CBS affiliates. The race officially kicked off at 8:30 a.m. ET before the Elite Women’s group, led by last year’s winner Edna Kiplagat of Kenya, began their run at 9:32 a.m. ET. The Elite Men’s group kicked off at 10:00 a.m. ET.
Every year, the race attracts more than 500,000 spectators, with many of the world’s elite runners making their way through the course.
This year, the weather is an issue with a downpour impacting the Boston area, but that didn’t stop the athletes from lacing up their shoes and competing.
