The Modesto Marathon committee, in conjunction with the ShadowChase Running Club of Modesto, also offers an adult training program to encourage family participation and improved community fitness.The Modesto Marathon and Teens Run Modesto programs are seeking sponsors.

As we gear up for our fifth year, we have seen the positive effects the marathon has had on our community. The teen and adult groups are flourishing, we have a new walking group, and even greater growth is expected.

We would love to share our success with you and talk about ways you may share in our program, promoting your business and cause as well. First and most importantly we are seeking another major sponsor who will also gather the benefits of hosting the Marathon and all promotions we do leading up to the race day itself.
