The Two Cities Marathon is celebrating it's 15 year anniversary and is presented by CalViva Health and starts and finishes at the beautiful Clovis Community College.  This Boston qualifying marathon course was redesigned in 2021 to offer a scenic and truly flat course for elite and beginners alike.  This year our course has been officially designated as a qualifying course for the 2024 Olympic Trials.

Just 60 miles from Yosemite, Fresno and its sister city Clovis, sit as the Gateway to Yosemite National Park as well as Kings Canyon and Sequoia National Parks, home of some of the largest and oldest redwoods in the World!  With plenty of hotels to choose from you can see why many participants run, stay and play!
