The 2010 Paris International Marathon has sold out at 40,000 runners, organizers announced earlier this week. The race is scheduled for Sunday, April 11, in the French capital.

"This early end to the registrations shows once again the craze the Paris Marathon provokes," said spokesperson Emilie Poucan through a press release.

In terms of finishers, the best measure of race size, Paris ranked #3 in Europe in 2009 after 30,334 runners crossed the finish line, up 5% from last year. That figure put Paris behind only London (35,306 finishers) and Berlin (34,994) on the European Continent. Paris is now ranked #5 in the world in total finishers behind New York (43,475), London, Berlin, and Chicago (33,475).
