SEPTEMBER 25, 2020, MESSAGE FROM CIM:
We are devastated to announce that we are cancelling the 2020 California International Marathon. We appreciate everyone\'s patience and support as we turned over every stone, working through all possible options and considerations for all of our event stakeholders.
We would like to thank our local leadership, municipal and community partners, and county and state health officials that worked so hard to create an avenue for us to still potentially hold the event in recognition of its immense importance to our community.
Ultimately, there were too many hurdles to overcome to put on an event that could be a force of good for all of our stakeholders, with our participant and volunteer experience given the greatest consideration.
There are 3 important things we would like to communicate at this time:
1) ALL 2020 registrants have been given a \"Worry Free\" Voucher to be used for free entry into any one future CIM through 2023. More information on the “Worry Free” Voucher here: https://runsra.org/california-international-marathon/registration/
2) We have created the Project 26.20 event as a digital multi-faceted platform to continue to support, inspire, and enage anyone still determined to get 26.2 out of 2020. Register at https://runsra.org/project-26-20/
3) We are encouraged that we, in partnership with our local health officials, feel that we have identified safe policies and procedures to bring in-person running events back to our community very soon. Please stay tuned for more info from us about in-person running and racing opportunities in the coming weeks.
Thank you for everyone’s patience and understanding as we worked hard to fulfill our duty and responsibility to our registrants to find a way to put on the event they committed to. We look forward to having everyone back at a future CIM to ultimately fuflfill that promise of a first class experience to you.
