The (second) biggest marathon of the fall season is slated for Sunday morning in Illinois. The 2017 Bank of America Chicago Marathon, one of six Abbott World Marathon Majors, is celebrating its 40th year running and will feature upwards of 40,000 runners including several hundred Canadians. With a strong elite field – including prominent AmericansĀ like Galen Rupp and Jordan Hasay – Sunday’s race is one you won’t want to miss.

The race, which notably features Dennis Kimetto, the current men’s marathon world record holder (in a time of 2:02:57), and Tirunesh Dibaba, a 2:17:56 marathoner and the women’s 5,000m world record holder, begins at 7:30 a.m. local time, 8:30 a.m. EDT.

Here’s how to follow along on race day.

How to watch

According to NBC 5 Chicago, there will be a live stream here, which is available “from around the world.” Streaming is also available on the NBC 5 Chicago mobile application and at Telemundo Chicago, according to NBC.
