Speaking ahead of the event, race director Jim Balcome, who is stepping down after 47 years leading the event, said “This is Thanksgiving in Manchester. All runners and walkers are treated equally from the top finishers to the last person to cross the finish line. The broadcast and livestream will help convey that sentiment to a wide audience.
Meanwhile, FOX61 is looking forward to broadcasting the race live for all the viewers across the United States, and especially for those in Connecticut.
“The Manchester Road Race is truly one of our signature events each year, and we are honored to continue the Thanksgiving tradition of broadcasting and live streaming the race,” said FOX61 General Manager Humberto Hormaza.
“It is truly a unique Connecticut Thanksgiving celebration, and we are thrilled to provide this service to the community.”
