407,000 runners finished marathons in the USA in 2007. With the population at around 303,500,000 that calculates to about one-tenth of a percent, or 1 per every thousand. This answer above assumes every runner runs one marathon, only. If marathoners averaged 10 marathons each in 2007, that would be one-onehundredth of a percent who run marathons, by the above figures. Even that seems high to me.
A marathon is a race that is 26 miles in length. At least 10 percent of women run marathons each year.
less than 1% of the population..
tThe percentage of American's that have run a marthon is only 0.5 percent, which is a 140 percent increase from 1990.ÊThere are about 570 marathons that are held annually.
There is no accounting for the number of American's who run marathons each year. Marathons are run at many school levels, as well as at city, state, and national levels.
