Entry lists are up for this weekend’s USA Marathon National Championships in Sacramento.  California International’s “Downhill to Dowtown” will host runners from across the United States.  Most all proudly, loudly, and clearly stating their club’s  origin.  Leaving no doubt as to where these lads live and train and represent.
