Course Details
Runners travel from downtown to the historic, tree-lined college neighborhoods. After passing the Modesto Junior College west campus, they head into the countryside viewing the beautiful Diablo Mountain Range and passing the San Joaquin River National Wildlife Refuge.

Runners then make their way back toward town, finishing near the start line.

The flat, fast course will be open 7 hours, allowing adequate time for first-time marathoners.

Runners will travel through tree-lined historic college neighborhoods, past Modesto Junior College’s west campus, and into the countryside surrounded by scenic orchards.

The half marathon course is flat and fast. It will remain open for 7 hours. Walkers and first-timers are especially encouraged to participate in this event.

The 3.1-mile loop begins at 7:25 a.m., 25 minutes after the marathon runners.

The course travels from downtown Modesto to beautiful tree-lined streets. Runners will pass by Graceada Park and the celebrated “house in the middle of the road.” before turning down the Virginia Corridor to the downtown finish.

Are dogs allowed on the course?

Service animals are allowed on the course. For the safety of other runners and your pets, no other dogs are allowed on the course.

Are children allowed on the course?

Children in strollers are allowed on the course at no additional charge. Only the paid runner gets swag, though. For the safety of other runners and your child, we ask that runners with strollers line up near the back of the starting chute.

Children who are paying participants of the race (accompanied by a parent) will get swag.

Can someone else pick up my bib for me?

You can have someone else pick up your bib and packet at the Expo. Please send them with a copy of your photo ID and a completed Packet Pick Up Authorization form.
