Fourth Annual Marathon for the Blind and Visually Impaired

In partnership with VSP Vision Care, the United States Association of Blind Athletes (USABA) will host the Fourth Annual USABA National Marathon Championship, which will be held in conjunction with the California International Marathon (CIM) on December 2, 2012 in Sacramento, CA. Some 30 blind or visually impaired runners from around the world will compete, including 15 who will run the full marathon. These numbers far exceed past years and are up from 18 participants in 2011. Runners are representing 10 states, numerous Canadian provinces, China, and New Zealand, complementing the global reach the CIM has itself. (Picture from last year’s marathon.)
