For those who are interested in watching the race but do not have the benefit of local television coverage, New York City Marathon live streaming options will be available on the WatchESPN app, WatchABC app and  7Online.

The New York City Marathon covers Staten Island, Brooklyn, Queens and the Bronx, before coming to an end in Manhattan.

A detailed look at the course map for the marathon can be seen in the video below:

There are few things more grueling for an athlete than a 26.2 marathon, so simply crossing the finish line is a major accomplishment for all of the runners who will be stepping out onto the course Sunday morning.

While some simply have the goal of finishing, there will be those who are hoping to set personal bests and even challenge world records.

Whether that will be done remains to be seen.
