If you’re gunning for a BQ or a PR, this is the race for you! Nominations flooded in from runners obsessed with hitting their BQs or in some cases OTQs! (Olympic Trials Qualifiers). Described as an “amazingly fast course” the California International Marathon (also referred to as “CIM”) was also blessed with a picture-perfect race day in 2017, which resulted in fast times and happy runners.
CIM is a point-to-point race, but the event manages the logistics with ease (as evidenced by their stellar race reviews). The event’s late Fall/early Winter timing also makes it perfect for those looking to avoid summer training AND a cold winter race. It’s also a great option for those looking for one more race before the holiday season begins and the racing year comes to a close.
