I was just notified that the Paris Marathon registration was closed. No biggie. But I was surprised at some of the stats from this year’s registrants, particularly at the low number of female participants. We run closer to 50/50 in the US. DQ
Paris, the running capital
The 38th edition of the Schneider Electric Paris Marathon, which will be held next April 6th, will once again be the most popular event on the French sporting calendar. The capital’s marathon – the start traditionally takes place on the Champs-Elysées – has become an unmissable event for tens of thousands of runners from over 150 countries.
An ongoing popular success
With 50,000 runners (the record entry, achieved in 2013), the Schneider Electric Paris Marathon remains one of the key races of its type on the planet. The attractiveness of Paris – the most beautiful city in the world – adds to the prestige of the event.
