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.
Always well organized with nice swag and beautiful and creative medals each year. Love that it’s a flat course, easy to follow, and the supportive crowds cheering! Good job Modesto!
Modesto Marathon had a great small town community feeling as you ran through the country roads. It was a flat course which many people love. The weather was perfect. The roads were wide and not crowded. The aid stations had great people and everyone was very friendly. They were placed a great distance apart and there was plenty of them. It was very well organized and all the volunteers were great.

The course is beautiful and pretty flat. There’s plenty of food and hydration stations and of course lots of volunteers to cheer the runners!
The overall feel of the race is great, there is so much support from the local running community and the excitement for the race is contagious.

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!
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!

This was my 4th Modesto in a row and I love it for: accurate mile markers, easy race-day bib pick-up, cheerful volunteers, positive crowds, course flatness, chocolate milk & good food at the finish, and “tasty” drink options in the beer garden
I liked it so much last year that I came back again. It’s a full-on marathon with a small-town feel, and the community is so friendly.

It’s a great event. I always bring friends to it. This year’s swag was amazing.

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