is this event going to be shown on TV or just online?

Both. The 10K races will be televised, but only in part. The exact length and timing of the televised portions will be determined on that day depending on a variety of factors. The races will, however, be webcast in their entirety no matter how much - or how little - the events are broadcast on the NBC networks.
