Since 1982, The marathon will begin promptly at 7:00 on Sunday near the Folsom Dam in Folsom. The scenic 26- mile, 385-yard course runs from Folsom Dam to the State Capitol in Sacramento. Our point-to-point, net downhill course has remained unchanged for 33 years, providing over 100,000 runners of all speeds–from first-timers to the fastest of the fast–the best chance to achieve their marathon goals. The CIM is certified and sanctioned by USATF and is a Boston Marathon and US Olympic Trials Marathon qualifier. The CIM is put on by the Sacramento Running Association, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
