Mine is located here:
C:\Users\...\Documents\My Games\Sid Meier's Civilization 5\cache
Deleting all of the .db files there can sometimes help especially if you've been messing with mods and game files.
Also a Logs folder parallel to cache which may contain info on what caused your crash. Other than that make sure you are able to load the game with no trainer running (trainer should not cause a start up crash since you haven't activated it) and ask on the Civ 5 official forums.
I'm running Windows 7 64 bit and the trainer works fine. Only time it crashes (which is with any trainer from CH) is if I start the trainer up and exit the folder I have it in before the trainer verifies itself. After that its golden for me.

I saw a ton of threads on official forums of people saying 69+ cities causes this runtime game load error...others say over turn 160+ causes this. So far I caused it 4 times... one with a game 31 turns, one with a game 22 turns, another with a game 14 turns... and the worst was today a 3 turn game and now i cant load it.
I notice that when I do not use the trainer I am able to reload the game without a crash.
I believe the reason is when you use "unlimited moves" I end up exploring the entire huge map very early in the game and expose the huge amount of enemy cities everywhere.
I think this is causes some bug in the game to glitch out. I am just hoping "2K games" fixes this issue or I wasted 50 bucks on this game. Over a week now and its only playable 1 sitting at a time... no going back.
Anyone else get this?

We have about 7 new options that will be added sometime this weekend which may help with some of the issues. We've designed an option that will let you move anywhere... over mountains, send boats across land into separate waterways, move soldier units across water, etc. We've also addressed several requests such as XP, resources, etc. By being able to move "through" areas that you couldn't before, you can explore in many less turns which should help with the crash frequency.
