Wednesday, April 2, 2008 Offers First Ever Global Webcast of Boston Marathon deserves some kudos. For the first time ever, international fans will be able to watch this year’s Boston Marathon by traveling no further than their key boards. World Championship Sports Network (WCSN), the premier destination for fans of Olympic and lifestyle sports, will be offering the first ever global webcast of the 112th running of the Boston Marathon via its broadband network.

Holding its traditional place on Patriots' Day, Monday, April 21, beginning at 9:25 a.m. EST, race fans can go to comprehensive start to finish coverage of the 26.2 mile event as more than 20,000 contenders set stride on the hilly New England terrain including the infamous one-half mile stretch known as Heartbreak Hill.

"WCSN has established itself as the top destination for competitive running and road racing events. Our mission is to elevate and deliver Olympic and lifestyle sports that exemplifies the best of the human spirit," said Claude Ruibal, CEO of WCSN. "By working with the Boston Athletic Association, we are pleased to give viewers worldwide the opportunity to watch one of the world's most prestigious sporting events and that combined, with our broadcasts of the New York, Chicago, London and Berlin Marathons, among others, provide our fans the opportunity to capture the entire season of major marathons from around the world."Read more.
