Marathon Registration

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.

In 2013, entries filled in early August, so enter early to avoid disappointment.
