Records and Winners

jonolsen2011

So far, two of our past marathon winners have committed to running the 2013 Surgical Artistry Modesto Marathon. Modestan Jon Olsen will be trying for his third victory in four years in preparation for running in the World 24-Hour competition in Holland later this year. Michelle Meyer, who is attending medical school in San Francisco, will be back to attempt to break her 2011 course record. Meyer went on to qualify for the Olympic Trials after using SAMM in her training that year!

Being fast can translate into fast cash at the 2013 SAMM. Overall male and female winners will take home a cool $500. Add another $500 for setting a course record! Half marathon winners will receive $250, and another $250 for setting course records; while 5K victors will receive $100 and a $100 bonus for setting a new record.

Here are the past SAMM winners:

    What will also be quite a feat for Michelle: I heard that she is taking one of the biggest tests in Medical School right before the Surgical Artistry Modesto Marathon. We (as former medical students) all have spent months studying for this test in our journey to becoming doctors. Most doctors have spent ever spare moment cramming in as much info as we can for this particular test (especially in the weeks before this test) that she has to take. So we’re very honored that she still has time to fit in our Surgical Artistry Modesto Marathon.
