California International Marathon

Presented by California International Marathon at CIM Start Line

The 35th Annual California International Marathon and relay is coming to Sacramento. Due to its excellent race organization and fast course, the California International Marathon has always been a favorite event for first time marathoners, fitness runners, and especially for runners seeking a PR, a Boston Marathon or Olympic Marathon Trials qualifying standard. The California International Marathon (CIM) is a marathon organized by runners, for runners! CIM was founded in 1983 by the Sacramento Running Association (SRA), a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

CIM has a gently rolling, point-to-point, net downhill course with well maintained streets and few turns.  The CIM start is at a 366 ft. elevation and its finish at a 26 ft. elevation.

CIM has steadily grown in numbers from a field of 1,600 runners in 1983 to a race that now fills to a capacity of more than 9,000 marathoners.  Over the years, the SRA has added a four-person relay (over 1,000 teams now compete) and a 2.62-mile maraFUNrun held in the spirit of fitness and fun for 2,000 participants.  Both of these events are a component of SRA’s mission to expose people of all ages to the benefits of a healthy lifestyle through running.

Both local and out-of-town runners are encouraged to take the bus that is provided as part of both the marathon and relay registration.
