Mudroom Backpacks is beyond excited to announce a collaboration with the Sacramento Running Association (SRA) and the California International Marathon (CIM) for the 2019 CIM Marathon and Expo for a CIM logo'd Mudroom Backpack.
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.
Mudroom makes backpacks designed to carry a pair of shoes separately from laptops, electronics and personal items. Mudroom is the perfect design for runners traveling with race day footwear to a destination events like CIM. Mudroom is a tool to allow runners to travel easily, efficiently and quickly weekend events around town or around the country.
