2009 Boston Marathon - Start Times, Watch Live Online, Track Runners, and More

Today is Patriots' Day in New England, and that means it's time for the 2009 Boston Marathon. You can watch the Boston Marathon live online at Universal Sports starting at 9:30 a.m.

Temperatures are said to be in the mid 40s in Boston, which should result in fast times.

Here are the start times for today's Boston Marathon:
9:22 a.m. Wheelchair Division Start
9:32 a.m. Elite Women's Start
10:00 a.m. Elite Men & Wave 1 Start
10:30 a.m. Wave 2 Start

For text-based updates, go to the Boston Marathon home page, to read ongoing commentary on the men's and women's races and a list of the leaders in the open categories, as well as the top American men and women and the top competitors in the wheelchair division. The Boston Marathon home page also has links to the course map, race statistics, and more.

To track runners in today's race, use the Boston Marathon race tracker (this link is for individuals; a tracking link for teams is also available).

Good luck to all competitors!
