ParisSnooze: Paris Marathon Huge Success

The annual Paris Marathon took place April 15, 2007 and attracted an incredible 28,261 runners from all corners of the globe to dash thru the streets of Paris.

even more wanted to compete but five months before the event organizers capped registrants at 35,000 in order to create room for comfortable running in the streets. (apparently several thousand were no shows)

250,000 cheering spectators lined the course.

Sounds like a neat time to be in Paris!
