J Street in East Sacramento will be closed next Sunday for the California International Marathon. CIM official information and course map are below.
The California International Marathon (CIM) was founded in 1983 by the Sacramento Running Association (formerly Sacramento Long Distance Running Association) to bring a world-class running event to the Sacramento area. The same course develped then provides runners with a very fast, point-to-point, net-downhill marathon.
Tracing an historic route used by the gold miners during the 1849 Gold Rush, it begins at the Folsom Dam, passes through semi-rural suburbs into bustling midtown Sacramento, and has a spectacular finish in front of the California State Capitol.
The CIM’s 26-mile, 385-yard distance is certified and sanctioned by USATF (#CA07004RS), and therefore is a Boston Marathon qualifier and an Olympic Marathon Trials qualifier. It is frequently a regional or national USATF Championship event as well.
