SACRAMENTO -- They've hit the cap -- three months early. This year's California International Marathon is already at capacity.
The December race has now closed its general registration after reaching its cap of 8,000 runners.
The California International Marathon has doubled in size since 2005, according to the Sacramento Running Association's John Schumacher.
Schumacher says there are still two ways to get in if you want to run. There are 300 charity entries available at $250 each and proceeds go to the SRA's youth fitness programs.
The other way to get into the marathon is if you have a qualifying time. A qualifying time is a finishing time within five minutes of the Boston Marathon qualifying standard, Schumacher said.
Spots are also still available for the CIM relay, split among for runners.
