Running 26.2 miles may sound like torture to some, but for thousands of local residents it was the highlight of 2015. The Surgical Artistry Modesto Marathon came to town on March 29, celebrating all things running.

More than 3,000 people competed in the event, running the marathon, half-marathon, or 5K. Thousands more watched from course-side to cheer on friends, families, and strangers alike.
