California International Marathon & Relay

December 4 @ 7:00 am - 3:00 pm

#1 Boston Qualifier ♦ Spectacular State Capitol Finish

Downhill to Downtown

This point-to-point, net downhill course has remained unchanged for 38 years, providing over 100,000 runners of all speeds–from first-timers to the fastest of the fast–the best chance to achieve their marathon goals.

The CIM is certified and sanctioned by USATF and is a Boston Marathon and US Olympic Trials Marathon qualifier.

The CIM is put on by the Sacramento Running Association, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.

About CIM

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.  The SRA Board of Directors is comprised of runners with a combined total of 150+ years of service to the CIM.

The same route SRA management created for the 1983 inaugural CIM will take you through rural countryside, then through the towns of Orangevale, Citrus Heights, Fair Oaks and Carmichael and finally, under a canopy of trees in full fall colors, into the city of Sacramento for the State Capitol finish.  Even though the course has remained the same, the race has grown into a true international event.

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.

The SRA Board of Directors, race management and volunteers work thousands of hours year-round to ensure that all runners have the best marathon experience possible, whether you are an experienced elite racer, mid-packer or are running for your first marathon finisher’s medallion.  We look forward to seeing you in December!
