The Berlin Marathon, where the men’s world record has been broken five of the last nine years, will stream live on the NBC Sports app on Sunday beginning at 2:30 a.m. ET.

The race will also air on NBCSN on Monday from 7:30-10 p.m. ET. The race schedule is here, with the elite runners slated for a 3:15 a.m. ET start.

The men’s field includes Kenyan Wilson Kipsang, who broke the world record at the 2013 Berlin Marathon, and Ethiopian Kenenisa Bekele, the current 5000m and 10,000m world-record holder on the track.

At the 2015 Berlin Marathon, Kenyan Eliud Kipchoge came 63 seconds shy of the world record set by Dennis Kimetto at the 2014 Berlin Marathon (2:02:57). Kipchoge ran much of the race with his insoles flopping out from the back of his shoes.

Kipchoge is not in this year’s Berlin field as he is recovering after winning the Rio Olympic marathon on Aug. 21.

Neither Kipsang, the 2012 Olympic marathon bronze medalist, nor Bekele, a three-time Olympic track champion, was selected for his nation’s 2016 Olympic marathon team. That freed them up for Berlin.

Also in the Berlin field is Kenyan Emmanuel Mutai, whose runner-up time from the 2014 Berlin Marathon is the third-fastest clocking of all time (2:03:13).

The women’s field in Berlin includes two-time Berlin winner Aberu Kebede of Ethiopia.
