How would a person illegally run a marathon? Assuming he did not get money for doing so, why worry about it? To qualify for the Boston Marathon, you have to qualify in a marathon that is sanctioned by the Boston Marathon Association. Once you have qualified, you may enter the Boston Marathon. It is the only one that requires a qualifying time in order to enter. Many runners train hard to make the qualification time and are frustrated if someone jumps in the course and runs it illegally. There is no money involved, just hard, honest training.

I would guess less than 10%, but don't know for certain. Furtermore, I assume the percentage has actually decreased as the marathoning has become more popular. So, whereas, 10% may qualify now, someone in the 20th percentile 20 years might actually have run a faster time.
The fastest marathon ever was run by Geoffrey Mutai(2:03:02) at the Boston Marathon on April 18, 2011. But because the legendary Boston course does not meet IAAF layout standards, the World Record belongs to Patrick Makau(2:03:38) recorded at the Berlin Marathon on September 25, 2011.
