People Behind The Race
I have been to several of these races, and the Modesto Half Marathon is definitely my favorite by far. The course is fast, fast enough that I ran my 3-minute PR here. It must have also been the energetic atmosphere; everyone, including the runners, was very encouraging!
I’d like to challenge other sedentary types like myself to run/walk the marathon or half marathon. I can say with some certainty that if I can aim for this, many others can too. Plus it’s for a good cause – the Teens Run Modesto program. Couch lovers and runners should all come out for this event because it is history in the making – the Surgical Artistry Modesto Marathon.
