Event Information:

In 1983, marathoner John Mansoor and entrepreneur Sally Edwards organized the first CIM to be an Olympic Marathon Trials qualifier. CIM served as the United States National Marathon Championship for men in 1984 and for women in 1984, 1985, 1989, and 1993. The California International Marathon, the nation’s fastest-growing marathon for each of the last three years, has attracted a record number of entries and received those entries at a faster clip. The Dec. 5 race between Folsom and the state Capitol drew 8,000 entrants, a 10 percent increase over last year’s record field, a news release said. In addition to the standard marathon, the CIM attracted 4,000 entrants in the Marathon Relay Challenge and 3,000 children for the Kaiser Permanente Youth Fitness Program.
