Quad Cities Live provides a Bix 7 weekend preview including how viewers can catch this year’s race coverage. KWQC-TV6 will not be able to broadcast the Bix 7 on the flagship channel due to NBC’s coverage of the 2021 Summer Olympic Games. Watch the segment to learn details or scroll down to see a breakdown of where you can catch each event that is part of this exciting weekend.

TV6 Meteorologist Kevin Phelps and color commentator Toni Reavis return to host our live, exclusive coverage on KWQC-TV6, channel 6.1, Circle 6.6 channel and live streaming on Here is the line-up:

Brady Street Sprints: Thursday, July 22nd 7:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.

Watch the full coverage as local runners participate in a short relay race up a Mississippi River bluff for the “Brady Street Sprints”.

Bix-7 Special coverage: Saturday, July 24th 6:30 a.m. - 7:30 a.m.

Our second half of Quad Cities Today Weekend will be dedicated to the race.

Bix-7 pre-show: Saturday, July 24th 7:30 a.m. - 8:00 a.m.

Live coverage leading up to the big event with live reports along the race course.

Bix-7 race: Saturday, July 24th 8:00 a.m. - 9:00 a.m. (NOT TO BE AIRED on KWQC 6.1)

The starter gun signals the beginning of the 47th Quad-City Times Bix 7 with the winner expected to cross the finish line before 9:00 a.m. The race will NOT air on KWQC 6.1, because of NBC coverage of the Olympics. You’ll find live coverage on our Circle channel 6. 6 or channel 137 on Mediacom and also streamed live on the web.

* TV6 is currently working with Medicom on their programming guide. If you are looking at the Mediacom guide and see “paid programming” listed for Saturday morning’s schedule on The Circle, that is not correct. It will be showing the Quad-City Times Bix 7 coverage. We are working with Mediacom to get that fixed.

Brady Street Sprints/Bix Jr. Race Highlights: 9:00 a.m. - 10:00 a.m.

Highlights from Brady Street Sprints and Bix Jr. Race airing on The Circle channel 6.6.

If you miss the in-the-moment coverage, you can watch the replay on after the race.
