2018 was my 4th year running this Marathon. Great course, great volunteers, aid stations, jacket, medals and swag.
I have run the Modesto Half Marathon many times and I have always had a good experience. Everything about the event is well organized and professional, but very personal and friendly. The course is flat and fast, well marked, and well separated from traffic. Overall a very friendly, low-stress event that I highly recommend.

The spectators are supportive and the aid stations are awesome. I love that we can walk to the start line from our hotel. The expo is amazing with great vendors. And of course you can’t go wrong with beer and wine at the finish.

I loved that there was cheering for every single person who ran/walked to the finish line! Having music close to the finish line and other runners cheering/running others in was very encouraging to finish the race. The team that put this event on is just incredible!!! A very BIG thank you!

The pacer was awesome and very encouraging to all that would run near him. He made it easier for me to finish! All the volunteers throughout the course were great! Thank you!
Organizers did a fabulous job. Registration through finding start line was simple. Everyone was pleasant. Had a great time. Hope to fulfill my bucket list of running a Marathon at a future Modesto event. Thank you.
I was so impressed with the Modesto Marathon!! This was the 17th marathon for me personally and found Modesto to hit all the stars – great course, supportive spectators, and great support on the course. One of the best – shirts for people who BQ’d for Boston!!!! Modesto, you ROCKED IT!!!!!
It’s a great event. I always bring friends to it. This year’s swag was amazing.

Another excellent and well organized event! Communication via e-mail easily kept participants up to date without being too cumbersome; Expo was well organized with a variety of vendors. Bib and packet pick-up also well organized. Thank you again and looking forward to 2019’s event!

From the amazing volunteers to the wonderful guy riding with a speaker (seriously, he was my lifesaver), I love this 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!
