Fastest course in the west.



December 4, 2016

The California International Marathon (CIM) was founded in 1983 by the Sacramento Running Association (SRA) and brought a world-class running event to the Sacramento area.

The same course developed then, and used today, provides runners with a very fast, point-to-point, net-downhill marathon with a spectacular finish in front of the California State Capitol.

The CIM is certified and sanctioned by USATF, and therefore is a Boston Marathon qualifier and an Olympic Marathon Trials qualifier.

The CIM Relay Challenge and 2.62-mile maraFUNrun & Fitness Walk are also part of the California International Marathon.

The Sacramento Running Association is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
