Runners from all over the North State and beyond took part on Sunday in the Redding marathon.

The race had several different events such as a marathon relay, a 5K and a full marathon.

Runners started at the Shasta Dam, weaving their way along the Sacramento River and finishing at the Sundial Bridge in Redding.

The "Sweat Elite Athletic Team" put on Sunday’s event and all of the money raised will help high schoolers who are involved in running.

“We're a nonprofit organization that gives close to $10,000 a year out to local high school runners and this is one of our four events that we put on,” said Tori Parks, the race director of the marathon.

This race also serves as a qualifier for the Boston marathon, so it gives local runners the chance to compete with some of the most elite runners in the world.
