USABA & CIM Run for a Reason

In 2007, the California International Marathon first adopted a visually impaired division and it quickly became a premier destination marathon event for blind runners from across the country. Not only does the CIM serve as the United States Association of Blind Athletes (USABA) National Marathon Championships, it welcomes international participants, youth, novice marathoners, blinded veterans, and relay participants.

The United States Association of Blind Athletes (USABA) is a 501(c)(3) organization that provides life-enriching sports opportunities for every individual with a visual impairment.  A member of the U.S. Olympic Committee, USABA provides athletic opportunities in various sports including, but not limited to track and field, Nordic and alpine skiing, biathlon, judo, wrestling, swimming, tandem cycling, powerlifting and goalball (a team sport for the blind and visually impaired).

USABA cannot accomplish its mission without fundraising support from caring people who would like to share the sport they love with someone who would not otherwise be able to participate.


USABA would also like to thank Richard Hunter, our volunteer marathon coordinator for his tireless efforts in ensuring that every USABA athlete who toes the start line has an outstanding experience.  Please click the video below to learn about his story.
