Sara Hall and Galen Rupp will lead the US hopes at the 2021 Chicago Marathon here this morning and you can watch and listen to all the action from this World Athletics Elite Platinum Label road race.
For the first time since 2019, runners will take to the street for the biggest race in the city, after the 2020 event was run virtually to due the COVID-19 pandemic. I am looking forward to watching this year’s race, the first of its kind on American soil this year after the marathons in Berlin and London in recent weeks.
