CIM Filling Up Early!

Don't procrastinate!

Don’t procrastinate!

The trend for marathons these days is to fill up and fill up early.

It seems that the local, popular California International Marathon is no different.

The race filled up last year by August 22nd, and race management is reporting fewer than 1,000 of the total 8,000 entries remain available.

I guarantee you it will fill to capacity, so if you are planning to run the race–register soon.

This is a far cry from the good old days when we could sign up for the race at the expo!

If you are a faster runner (approximately able to meet Boston qualifying standards), there will be an additional window for registration between October 1st and October 15th for runners who can meet the Guaranteed Entry Standards.

Of course, if you, like me, are prone to forget things, you might want to go ahead and register now. There isn’t a price break–it’ll cost you $130 today or October 1st.

Good luck and I hope to see you at the Capitol on December 8th!

  1. Good luck to you John!

    I may see you but I plan to avoid that sweaty exercise to increase my T-shirt collection.

    Besides, my neighbors all say that their property values are increasing since I stopped running by their houses as often (for marathon training mileage).
