Michel Roux regularly beats Ramsey
Depending on your definition of z-list celeb, Matthew Parris, MP/journalist: 2:32:57. Tasty!
More obviously in the public eye as a celeb-marafun-runner, Tony Audenshaw (Emmerdale): 2:58:49. Not bad!
Google is your friend:
Results from 2012 place Nell mcAndrew as the fastest, with James cracknell being the only other one to break the 3 hour mark.
Quite happy to admit I don't recognise most of the people shown in the photos
I shouldn't have started looking, some americans as well:
Most impressive (to me) is George W Bush doing sub 3:45 in 1993. For some reason, I'm suspicious of Lance Armstrong improving by 15 minutes between 2006 and 2007

Matthew Parris the MP ? He was well under 3 hours.
Matthew Parris was a quality runner.
While we are on the subject of politicians, and getting a bit obscure, Mikuláš Dzurinda, former Prime Minister of Slovakia, ran 2:54:xx, and whilst Premier did NYC and London (3:36:xx)
Reliability obviously questionable but wiki page linked below lists quite a few...
How did the Big Brother contestant who's name escapes me get on at London? Jade Goody! With a name like that she must have had a Good-y time!
From that Wiki link,
Alan Turing, mathematician and cryptologist, 1947 Amateur Athletic Championships Marathon (2:46:03)
Seems like the geeky image of your typical boffin / codebreaker / computer scientist doesn't include an inability to do sport.
Nell McAndrew's ace now she's a runner. She always used to be lame as a z lister. Excellent to see that she's still running through her pg too (apologies in advance for link to Daily Hell) http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-2238618/Expectant-mother-Nell-McAndrew-goes-run-confessed-shell-exercising-pregnancy.html
