7:00 am California International Marathon (Unofficial Race)

The California International Marathon (CIM) is a marathon organized by runners, for runners!  CIM was founded in 1983 by the Sacramento Running Association (SRA), a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.  The SRA Board of Directors is comprised of runners with a combined total of 150+ years of service to the CIM.

The same route SRA management created for the 1983 inaugural CIM will take you through rural countryside, then through the towns of Orangevale, Citrus Heights, Fair Oaks and Carmichael and finally, under a canopy of trees in full fall colors, into the city of Sacramento for the State Capitol finish.  Even though the course has remained the same, the race has grown into a true international event.

CIM has a gently rolling, point-to-point, net downhill course with well maintained streets and few turns.  The CIM start is at a 366 ft. elevation and its finish at a 26 ft. elevation.

CIM has steadily grown in numbers from a field of 1,600 runners in 1983 to a race that now fills to a capacity of more than 9,000 marathoners.  Over the years, the SRA has added a four-person relay (over 1,000 teams now compete) and a 2.62-mile maraFUNrun held in the spirit of fitness and fun for 2,000 participants.  Both of these events are a component of SRA’s mission to expose people of all ages to the benefits of a healthy lifestyle through running.

6:30 pm RBAC - Performance Coaching

Looking to achieve a PR and/or professional style coaching? Coach Armand leads a weekly training session geared towards helping runners achieve running improvement in economy, form, strength, speed, flexibility, and overall endurance. The first session is FREE and then the monthly cost is $40 (this cost is much less that the overall value received!). Meet just south of the Rose Bowl Aquatic Center (RBAC) at the end of Parking Lot I.

Below is an introduction from Coach Armand:
“Hello everyone my name is Armand Crespo and I’m the Head Cross Country Coach and Head Track Coach at Pasadena City College. I also used to be the manager at Run With Us in Pasadena. I have known Dr. Smith for about a decade and we have become good friends. Dr. Smith has been trying to see if he and I could do something together to benefit the running community.

Late last year we started a great opportunity to get professional style coaching for the masses at a low rate. I coach once a week at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena using all of the techniques that have been given to Olympians, college, and semi-pro athletes for decades but have seemed to allude the masses. I have spent 20 years developing a program that can help anyone achieve their PR (personal record) at any distance. This program is for anyone who wants to improve using techniques that are proven to work. I have developed many athletes over the years from beginners to top collegians and have had the same success from All-Americans at the university level to state champions at the junior college level. My talent lies in the ability to see the deficiencies in people and correct them with care and attention. This is a personal program but grouping is used to help each individual to their goal.

This program is an added feature to the Pasadena Pacers training, I will just be here to give a little extra help to those who desire it.”

7:00 am Holiday Half Marathon

Snow at the start line and a snowflake medal at the finish makes this is a unique Southern California race. Get into the spirit of the season at the Holiday Half Marathon on Sunday, December 11.

The Holiday Half Marathon starts and finishes in the main plaza of Fairplex So Cal, home of the LA County Fair. Runners do a small neighborhood loop before heading towards the oldest venue on the NHRA Full Throttle Drag Racing Series circuit, the Auto Club Raceway at Pomona. After a quick sprint down the drag strip (mile ~3.5), runners will exit the fairgrounds and head toward Frank G. Bonelli Park. On the way, they will pass the Brackett Airfield, home to Air Force Auxiliary Squadron 64. Miles 5 through 10 provide beautiful views of Puddingstone Lake and challenge runners with gently rolling hills. The return trip takes runners back by the airfield, once more down the drag strip, and into the fairgrounds for a fast finish.

Fairplex, Pomona
