The California International Marathon (CIM) is a 26-mile, 385-yard road race in Northern California organized by the Sacramento Running Association. The course follows a historic gold miners' round beginning at Folsom Dam, passing through suburban Sacramento, and ending at the State Capitol. The race starts at an elevation of 366 ft. and finishes at an elevation of 26 ft.[1]

In 1983, marathoner John Mansoor and entrepreneur Sally Edwards organized the first CIM to be an Olympic Marathon Trials qualifier.[2]

CIM served as the United States National Marathon Championship for men in 1984[3][4] and for women in 1984, 1985, 1989, and 1993.[4][5]

On December 2, 1990, Waheed Karim set an Afghan national record with his 22nd place finish by covering the marathon distance in 2:28:46.[6][7]
