Get to Know the People Behind the Race

Mission Statement

The Modesto Marathon was founded to serve the local community by providing top-notch marathon, half marathon and 5K running events while promoting physical fitness and a healthy lifestyle.

Proceeds benefit the Teens Run Modesto program, which challenges area youth, especially those at-risk, to experience the benefits of goal-setting, character development, adult mentoring and improved physical fitness through a structured training program culminating in the running and completion of the Modesto Marathon.
