Our Views: Special event running into downtown Modesto on Sunday

There aren’t too many events that draw more than 3,000 people to downtown Modesto. That’s part of what makes Sunday’s Surgical Artistry Modesto Marathon special. Runners will compete one of three races – a 26.2-mile marathon, a half marathon and a 5-kilometer (3.1 mile) run. If you’re planning to be downtown near the M Street starting line, you might suffer a little inconvenience, but that’s a small price to pay. This race is important not only to our community image, but financially.
