Modesto Marathon & Half Marathon
The Modesto Marathon course features a downtown 7 a.m. start on M Street, between 10th and 11th streets, in conjunction with the Modesto Marathon.
Runners will travel through scenic tree-lined historic college neighborhoods, including the celebrated “house in the middle of the road,” then past Modesto Junior College’s west campus, and into the countryside surrounded by scenic orchards. Runners will make a loop and head back toward town, finishing near the Doubletree Hotel/Modesto Convention Center.
The Half Marathon course is flat and fast, and will remain open 7 hours. Walkers and first-timers are especially encouraged to participate in the 13.1-mile event.
