Scott Abbott, E.D. Sacramento Running Association May 01, 2018
The Culture of Running in Sacramento

The Sacramento Running Association (SRA) is a community-based non-profit that promotes the sport of running in the greater Sacramento area. The SRA spends over $1 million annually to manage events and programs to benefit local runners of all ages and abilities.

The Sacramento Running Association (SRA), a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization was established in 1982 with the mission of bringing world class running events to the Sacramento area. The first state of this mission was fulfilled when the inaugural California International Marathon (CIM) was held in December of 1983.

Since then the success of the CIM has enabled the SRA to expand its mission to encourage people of all ages to develop a healthy lifestyle through running. To this end, it has established a variety of running events and programs and provides funds and resources to a number of internal beneficiaries and community organizations.

The specific purposes of the SRA are to: promote fitness through running; bring international attention to Sacramento, California as a popular running community; and sponsor, organize and conduct high quality running events that will attract top athletes and the general running public.
