Episode 81 - Scott Abbott and CIM

Scott Abbott, the Executive Director at Sacramento Running Association and the Race Director for CIM 2022 sat down with us to talk details about his career as a runner through high school and college, his transition to coaching and his eventual role as the race director of the world-renowned California International Marathon, coming up this year on December 4th!

9000 marathoners and 1000 relay teams participated in the 2021 California International Marathon, and they ran a fast Boston qualifying course from Folsom to Sacramento. This massive road race has runners from all walks of life. Many are chasing personal goals, Boston qualifiers and the iconic finisher's medal.

This race has a fantastic organization behind it to truly cater to all levels of participants. Trail runners have also embraced this race as a traditional end-of-year event, whether to run it, volunteer at it or join the various pace groups. Check it out!
