Here's how ESPN will cover the 2013 ING New York City Marathon, release from ESPN: Firewot Dado won in 2011, p...

Firewot Dado won in 2011, photo by PhotoRun.net For Marathons to be watched, the stories to be compelling. The 1978 New York City Marathon was very compelling, as Bill Rodgers chased down a huge lead by Kirk Pfeffer, and his passing of Pfeffer made for great television. Again, in 1983, Rod Dixon catching Geoff Smith at 26 miles into the race was a huge moment in running television. ESPN is using a multi channel approach to tell the stories of the Marathon. We have posted their plans below and hope it is as compelling as it is complicated. In the end, the 40,000 plus stories in a major city marathon can be told thoughtfully, from the front, from the middle and from the back. It requires a team with vision, understanding of the sport, and most importantly, and appreciation for why the sports fan would watch people running 26.2 miles.
