The California International Marathon (CIM), is a marathon organized by runners, for runners! CIM was founded in 1983 by the Sacramento Running Association (SRA). The same route SRA management created for the 1983 inaugural CIM will take you through the rural country side then through the towns of Orangevale, Citrus Heights, Fair Oaks and Carmichael and finally under a canopy of trees in full fall colors, into the city of Sacramento for the State Captitol finish. Even though the course remained the same, the race has grown into a true international event. CIM has a gently rolling, point-to-point, net downhill course with well-maintained streets and few turns. CIM start is at 366 ft. elevation and its finish at a 26 ft. elevation.
