The Sutter Health Memorial Medical Center is sponsoring the Modesto Marathon which is being held this year on Sunday, March 11. This marathon is on a flat course, so you needn’t worry about a Heartbreak Hill intruding on your race experience.
The marathon, half-marathon and the relay marathon (for two people) start at the Modesto Centre Plaza, 1000 L St., Modesto at 7 am. The 5K race starts at 7:25 am. Your race packets will be available starting at 6 am. Online registration closes the day of the race, but you are urged to register as soon as possible. You can register here which includes the various race entry fees.
You can access the race maps here. After you finish the race, there will be a beer & wine garden to administer some adult libations to quench your thirst. Do you have more questions? Just visit the frequently asked questions page.
According to the race web site:
Proceeds benefit the Teens Run Modesto program, which challenges area youth, especially those at-risk, to experience the benefits of goal-setting, character development, adult mentoring and improved physical fitness through a structured training program culminating in the running and completion of the Modesto Marathon.
