The California International Marathon is a marathon organized by runners, for runners! It was founded in 1983 by the Sacramento Running Association.
The same route that the SRA administration created for the inaugural 1983 International California Marathon will take you through the rural countryside, then through the cities of Orangevale, Citrus Heights, Fair Oaks, and Carmichael, and finally, under a canopy of trees in Fall colors, to the city of Sacramento for the end of the State Capitol. Although the course has remained the same, the race has become a true international event. It has a smooth, point-to-point, net downhill run, with well-maintained fairways and few curves.
CIM has steadily grown in number of runners, from 1,600 in 1983 to a race that now reaches a capacity of more than 9,000 participants.
The organization and volunteers work thousands of hours throughout the year to ensure that all runners have the best possible marathon experience, whether they are an experienced elite runner, an intermediate runner or run for their own. first marathon. We hope to see you in December!
