What percentage of people run a half marathon?

i dont know the answer for a half marathon but i read that only 1 percent of the population has run a marathon(26.2) In a 2008 New York Times article about the Half Marathon becoming the hottest new distance in running, it estimates that 650,000 people completed half marathons in the US in 2007.
