Entries for the 2024 edition of the Lisbon Marathon have sold out just three months before the race, with 8,000 registered, the vast majority of them foreigners, the organization of the race that unites the municipalities of Cascais, Oeiras and Lisbon announced today.

In a statement, the organizers of the Lisbon Marathon said that 6,000 foreign runners of 90 different nationalities have registered.
