Local News

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (KTXL) — The California International Marathon has released the schedule and road closures for its 38th year, or what organizers are calling the #ComebackYear.

Nine thousand marathoners and 1,000 relay runners will gather Sunday morning in Folsom before taking on the 26.2-mile race. The route takes them through Orangevale, Citrus Heights, Fair Oaks and Arden-Arcade before runners race through the finish line blocks away from the State Capitol.

The race, which was founded by the Sacramento Running Association, has kept the same course since the ’80s. Last year, however, the CIM was canceled due to the ongoing and worsening pandemic.
