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.

2018 was my 4th year running this Marathon. Great course, great volunteers, aid stations, jacket, medals and swag.
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!

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!

This is always a great run. the best parts are the people at the aid stations and the free photos. The course is solid.

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!!!!!
Thank you so much for a great run. The course was clean and easy to run not to mention beautiful! This is my fourth year doing the 5k but won’t be my last.
