The ING NYC Marathon will return to live television this November via ESPN 2. This marks the first time since 1993 that the November 4th race will be covered by a live broadcast. In addition, ABC will present a two-hour national broadcast as a part of a 5-year television package.

Waking up to this coverage on a Sunday across the nation should be an inspiring start to your day or if you're in the NYC area and not taking part, a great way to avoid the crowds.

With that, let fall marathon season commence.
