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.

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. A Google search of the US population for 2007 gives a result of 301M total people. This would make the percentage of half-marathon finishers less than 1%. We're a pretty special group, eh? :)
