One of the last women’s events of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, the women’s marathon is set for Saturday, August 7th in Tokyo, which means Friday, August 6th at 5:00 p.m. ET in prime time. Both races will take place out of the heat of Tokyo, and instead will start and finish in Sapporo, about 500 miles north of the Olympic Stadium.
The women’s marathon will air live via online stream on Peacock, at NBCOlympics.com and through the NBC Sports mobile app. You’ll need a cable subscription for access. It will then air on replaY in prime time on NBC starting at 8 p.m. ET. If you aren’t in front of a TV, you can also get a trial from YouTube TV, Hulu with Live TV, AT&T TV Now, FuboTV, or Sling TV to stream the event.
Right now Brigid Kosgei of Kenya is the favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook at +110. The world record holder also won the 2018 and ‘19 Chicago Marathons, as well as the 2019 & ‘20 London Marathons.
Her teammate Ruth Chepngetich is +330 in an event traditionally dominated by Kenya. Sally Kipyego of the United States is the American with the best chance at +2000 according to the odds. She won a silver for Kenya at the 2012 Games in London in the 10,000 meter race.
