very very few... 100 miles? are you kidding me?
A fellow marathoner told me that 1% of people will ever run a marathon.
Considering that only about 500K people have ever run the Boston Marathon in over 115 years, the answer is not very many. If we're looking at just the US population, then that would be less than 0.2% of all Americans will run in the Boston Marathon. If we're looking at worldwide population, then it would be less than 0.0001% of the world will run in the Boston Marathon.
It is either between 0.1% and 2%
