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. 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? :)

1% . A fellow marathoner told me that 1% of people will ever run a marathon.
The expert answer is incorrect! A half marathon is not 21,098kilometres, It is 21.1 kilometres
The fastest half marathon, according to the official IAAF is 58:23.This was set by Zersenay Tadese in London, Portugal.

Because it was back in time during a war in Greece where a messenger ran from a town called marathon to pass on some relavant message about the enemy and the distance was 26.2 miles. So during the olymoics they created the event to commemorate that run.
Each year in the United States over half a million people runmarathons. Annually there are over 1100 marathons held.
This year (2010) there was a record turn out hitting the maximum number of participnats at 25,000. There were 21,532 finishers.
Approximately 65%. Roughly 20-25% of the population are old people who can't run and there are also disabled people too!
tThe percentage of American's that have run a marthon is only 0.5percent, which is a 140 percent increase from 1990.ÃThere are about570 marathons that are held annually.
Martin Lel running it in 2:05:15, Abderrahim Goumri in 2:05:30, Sammy Wanjiru in 2:05:24, Ryan Hall in 2:06:17(fastest American marathoner), and a lot of other kenyan, moroccan, and ethiopian marathoners finished this marathon in under 2:10:00.
There are up to 6 percent of the population in the United Statesalone that will run a triathlon. This number is slightly less forthe world-wide population as a whole.
find how long a marathon is, divide it in half, and find out how many kilometers are in it. Do the math.
Just under 13 minutes per mile (a slow jog or very fast walk, depending upon the individual).
At the 2008 Games in Beijing, 95 men and 81 women started their respective marathon ... 76 men and 69 women finished the race. At the 2004 Games in Athens, 101 men and 82 women started their respective marathon ... 81 men and 66 women finished the race.
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 b…e one-onehundredth of a percent who run marathons, by the above figures.. Even that seems high to me. ( Full Answer )
Depends how fast you run, you'd imagine. Usain Bolt at full speed would do a half marathon in less than an hour. If you walk it, you'd do it in about 2-2.25 hours. It depends on how fast you 'run', if at all. So I'd go for about 1.5-2 hours.
The time of the person in the middle of a half-marathon run in 2003 for men whereby 1409 runners competed is around 2 hours 30 mins. The fastest runner finished with a time of 1hr 12 mins 0 sec. The last runner finished in about 3 hrs 58 mins. About 200 people finished within 2hrs. That was the r…esult of the Singapore Standard Chartered Half Marathon Race in 2003. The timing is probably slower than other races due to the humid weather... ( Full Answer )
Yesterday, in the 2011 LA marathon, 27000 of us participated but of that 27000, 18914 finished -- Which is about 71% (it was under extreme conditions though, which may have caused more people than usual to drop out (all-day torrential rain, and 20mph winds = the shivers)
For your first half marathon, probably 10-13 minutes per mile, or if you are walking a little bit too, 13-16 minutes per mile. If you are a super amazing runner and/or have run a half-marathon before, then the sky's the limit.
There are 26.2 miles in a full marathon, thus there are 13.1 miles in a half marathon. No odd calculations... a half marathon is a half marathon.
I walk 5km in an hour just wondering if I am in proper walking zoneor need to pick it up a bit?

The answer depends upon the race. Most races will set a minimum age of 14 or 18, depending upon whether they want to include HS age athletes or not. Some races will not specify a minimum age, but will require younger athletes to be accompanied by a parent, who is also registered in the race. All …of those decisions are made with liability issues in mind and will be strictly enforced. It depends on the country. In the UK the minimum age for a half marathon is 17, for a full marathon it's 18. The governing body, UK Athletics, considers it harmful to a growing body to subject it to such extremes and a UK marathon allowing kids to participate would lose their insurance. However in the US there are kids as young as 12 competing in marathons ( Full Answer )
Most marathons require a age limit of 18 e.g the london, berlin, new york and cape town etc.... unless you got permission from your parents and the marathon organisation accepted that you are capable then you would be allowed at about 16-17 years old. Scientists say extreme distances like 10 miles… or more for a teenager could result in long term injuries and could cause growth pains and a lot more. Although the idea of running a marathon seems fantastic at a young age, you don't want to "burn yourself out" and not be able to run it again. You have your whole life to run a marathon and half marathon, your P.B's would normally come later at the age of 25-30 and look at Haile Gebrselassie he broke the world record at the age of 35! and he still can still break an hour for half marathons at the age of 38!! So be patient and your time will come, ! ( Full Answer )
According to statistics, slightly over 50 percent of the peoplefinish marathons. The others usually give up and drop out in thecourse of the marathon.
A marathon is a race that is 26 miles in length. At least 10percent of women run marathons each year.
By run do you mean run or jog. Any figure would be speculatory because the nature of the question, who is included as every person, man woman child, which country, which state, do people without legs count as not being able to run 10km or are they excluded by lack of a fundamental capacity.... Answe…rs are all about constructing questions that can be answered. Good luck with that. ( Full Answer )

Yes, there is a half marathon. A half marathon is about 13.1 miles long, half the distance of a full marathon, 26.2 miles.Â . \n
Depends on your age, gender, and skill level. I am a 35yr old male in decent shape who just ran his first half marathon in 1:51. My goal was to get under 2 hours which I think is a good bar to set as a male.
It depends on the runner, I'd say about 1:30-1:45 for someone who's trained and fast. I've seen the really fast ones (cough...Kenyans) do it in a little over an hour which for me is too insane to even comprehend.
100% anyone can run a 5k, its just a matter of how fast you can do it. dont be a dummy.
Me personally? Another hundred years. One guy ran 50 marathons in 49 days, and he took a day off in the middle, so he had two days where he had to run two marathons. There are ultramarathoners who run 50 or 100 miles without stopping. You? Consult with your physician.
Depends on the age, fitness level and gender of the athlete, as well as the course. The world record for a man is 58:23 and for a woman it is 1:05:50. Most people consider a time under 1:30:00 to be reasonably fast. Some half marathon races will set maximum times that the course will be open, …thus allowing slower runners and walkers to determine whether they will be quick enough to actually complete the distance before they register.

It depends on how much running experience you have already and howmuch time you have to train.
You get off the computer, go buy a garmin and some running shoes and... GO RUN.
For pace in minutes per mile, divide your finishing time by 13.11. For pace in minutes per kilometer, divide your finishing time by 21.1. If you're a runner and you are attempting to determine an appropriate pace or time goal, search for "McMillan's Running Calculator" which does a reasonable job… of estimating your pace based on finishing time of other races. ( Full Answer )
105 laps around a .25 mile track or 52 1/2 laps around a half mile track.
A good pace, not too fast though. Go out and practice, time yourself, work up to the two hour time limit. You can do it.
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, th…en it would be less than 0.0001% of the world will run in the Boston Marathon. ( Full Answer )

Half Marathon = 13.1094 miles Convert time to decimals: 1 + (49/60) = 1.8167 hours 13.1094 miles / X = 1.8167 hrs where X is your PACE. Solve for X = 13.1094 / 1.8167 = 7.2 mph to EQUAL the time stated so your pace must be faster than 7.2 mph.
