Loyal Runners

We would like to thank those dedicated runners who choose to join us, year after year, for the Fastest Course in the West!

What is a loyal runner?

Any runner who has completed 10 or more CIM’s (full marathon only). Participation does not have to be in consecutive years.

How do I join the program?

Any runners who have completed 10 or more CIM’s are welcome to join the Loyal Runner Program to start taking advantage of the benefits. Please enroll for the program here. Runners must be enrolled in the program to receive the benefits.

When is the deadline to enroll for the Loyal Runner Program?

To take advantage of the Loyal Runner Benefits for the 2023 CIM, please enroll by December 31 2022. If you register later than that, you run the risk of missing out on your benefits.

What are the benefits?

• Discounted registration rates each year for the California International Marathon
Name listed in the 2023 CIM Digital Event Program
• Bib badge to indicate you are a loyal runner

How does the discount work?

Registration for the 2023 CIM will open the day after the 2022 CIM. As always, registration will be at it’s lowest rates available with the Re-Run Special. This low entry fee has a limited number of spaces and typically sells out within days. Loyal runners will have access to the Re-Run special prices through the end of February. Loyal Runner discounts will not be applied retroactively.

Life Time Members!

To those runners who have completed 30 or more CIMs, we say Thank You and Congratulations! Our Life Time Members will still receive their free entries each year.

Note: This is not a guaranteed spot. You must request your Life Time Member Code and register by June 1 each year or before the event sells out, whichever comes first. These codes will not be sent automatically.
