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.
