Watch Austin Marathon race-day coverage on KXAN

AUSTIN (KXAN) — People who can't make it to the Austin Marathon can cheer on the runners from wherever they want to watch. KXAN is teaming up with the Ascension Seton Austin Marathon to host FloTrack's live coverage on race day.

KXAN will host a live-stream of the race online, as well as provide preview and follow-up coverage on its morning and evening shows Sunday, Feb. 17. This is the 28th annual year of the race, and some of KXAN's own will be running it as well.

"We're proud to support the Austin Marathon through our station-wide initiative, Simple Health," said Eric Lassberg, Vice President and General Manager of KXAN. "By highlighting all events during Austin Marathon weekend, including the Austin Marathon 5K, we hope to raise awareness for Central Texans on fun ways to be active within their community."

Simple Health is KXAN's public service initiative providing wellness stories to encourage people to live healthy lives. 

People from all states and more than 30 countries have run the Austin Marathon in the past. Online registration is still open for the events.
